ability to hide top level nodes in content explorer

We would find it useful to be able to hide top level nodes in the navigation pane in the content explorer. Would anyone else?

E.g. hide the folders node

You could always configure the folders permissions to allow only a specific community or role to have write or admin access; everyone else would have read-only access and so could see the folders but not create items within them etc. That may be a better solution as many Rx installations rely heavily on the folder structure

You cannot change the security permission on the top level nodes, unless you know something I don’t?
