Actually it turns out that you need to provide the path in a Rev-based file
path (i.e. forward slashes, not backslashes). So this will work:

  OpenFolder "C:/WINNT/Fonts"

but this won't:

  OpenFolder "C:\WINNT\Fonts"

You'll need the OpenFolder handler and the ConvertPath handler from the tip,
and they can be anywhere in the hierarchy as long as they're accessible
(card script, stack script, library, etc.)
