The GUI should acquire the cwd concept.
Having the application launcher in the file explorer window instead of
near the taskbar would be a good start ("I'm starting this app to work here").
Another idea could be to have a really quick "bookmark" feature on file
explorer windows and then show them in file requesters for easy choice.
Having it sort and/or colored by age/use would be perfect (like kate does
on filenames when you have many documents open).
