Is there any way to get tree organisation for Windows 7 file explorer favorites?

In XP there was a MenuBar called Favorites which seemed to be based on Internet Explorer Favorites. It was fantastic because it allowed for very fast tree style navigation (if set up correctly you could navigate it using first letter keystrokes, so to access a shortcut named "videos" in a folder named "files" was as quick as Alt-A f v)

"A Windows Library itself apparently cannot hold either directories or Windows file shortcuts, and therefore a tree structure.

But you could use a Folder included in a Windows Library as follows.
If you have (or want to have) a tree structure of actual directories and subdirectories, containing shortcuts to folders, and you want to have it ""read"" into the libraries, you have to:

Set up your tree structure in some directory (say, c:\my_favs)
Create a library (you can name it Favorites).
Include the folder (c:\my_favs) into your library."
