Directory selection dialogby foxcorner (Initiate)

foxcorner has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Hello venerable monks,
I am going crazy trying to find a directory selection dialog for Perl on Windows (using Tk or Win32) which has the following characteristics:
* Must allow users to select directories (this rules out getOpenFile)
* Must allow users to create a new directory (this rules out most of the other Tk widgets, and also Win32::FileOp::BrowseForFolder)
* Must actually work with recent Tk (this rules out Tk::FileDialog. Sadly, the "replacement" Tk::JFileDialog loses the ability to create a new directory...)
* Should look reasonably nice on Windows XP (this rules out the *horrible* DirSelect widget, which my users will have no idea how to use)
I have failed to find *anything* that fits the bill!
The ideal solution would be an implementation of getOpenFile which allows the selection of directories.
Is there such a thing? Or anything that would work?
