Data path aliases

I'm not entirely sure why the method of connecting to folders is used but I'm sure there's a good reason.  Whilst its in use though it may as well be used properly.

Anyway, some of my data paths link to other servers around the country and as our IT department love to put things inside as many folders as possible, these links are very long and its often impossible to see which is which in the drop down menu.

I'd love to see some sort of data connections manager where it'd be possible to edit these links and give them aliases.  I want to be able to quickly nip to 'graphics', not have to guess between '//<server>/<folder>/<folder>/<folder>' and '//<server>/<folder>/<folder>/<folder>' to find the same folder.

Surely this would be something fairly simple to implement?
