I sometimes have deep directory hierarchies in my project view when I'm using something that's outside of my application's hierarchy (and sometimes my application hierarchy gets deep too). It is frustrating to have to click repeatedly to navigate all the way down to where I'm headed, and even siblings of the folders I click don't get opened (although sometimes that's better). I would like to see option-click on a folder in the Project tool do an expand-fully.

I thought it was there already but indeed it isn't.  I agree it would be 
nice, although there is the issue of potentially very deep and large 
trees to deal with, probably with some limit on depth that gets expanded 
each time.

Thanks for the suggestion,
