I think it is redundant to have two views with so
similar structure. There can be a root node with
"Add Favorites" in Files view and projects roots
cannot be removed before their projects are
closed. Favorites and projects roots can have
different icons.

I think Favorites and Files tab have similar structure BUT there is
one main logical difference: Files tab shows files only from opened
projects. So it can be viewed as file view on currently opened
projects. Favorites tab can show (user can highly customize what to
show) any file/folder accessible on machine with no connection to
opened projects. I think it would not be good to mix these 2
approaches. It would result in one cumbersome tab with known scroll
problem: When user expands some nodes subroot nodes (Favories links)
would be shifted dows => user must scroll up/dows heavily to
view/access them. (Maybe it is subjective feeling.) HIE should
comment/decide this.
