Like with other files, it only copies the path, ie. you still have to 
type 'cd' manually, and press enter afterwards. It's not a perfect 
solution (I always wondered why you cannot execute a directory in the 
shell to enter it, like the Amiga shell allows), but it's working quite 
well; it's use case depends on what you're currently doing, sometimes 
it's more convenient than to use finger acrobatics for the Tracker add-
on (I'm not a big fan of those cmd-opt shortcuts) :-)

In any case, it cannot be a general replacement for something like 
Summon - it's just that I think that normal users don't use the shell 
often enough to add an add-on to the standard build. It's just my 
opinion, though, feel free to disagree in numbers ;-)
