IMO create folder doesn't really fit in the file browser plugin - it's
for opening files, not managing them. I think folders should be created
in the environment that then writes to that folder.

Really this would fit better in a dialog used for saving, and GTK
already does this for the Save As dialog.

(Also IIRC GTK doesn't have a specific icon for create folder.)
