I am expecting this feature too :)
ps: In windows, this will be very easy, but what about linux? there are too many file manager ......

With KDE4 being available for Windows, the used file manager really should be configurable, as people might want to use Konqueror or Dolphin instead of Windows Explorer.

This would be a total time-saver. I'm sure everybody needs this function at least once a month.

Under Windows you could just call "explorer.exe" and pass it the current folder as a parameter.

In addition to that, there should be option "Show in Explorer" for each local file. So when Explorer window opens, it highlights the file (in case you have 100 files in a folder). This is very easy, just call shell execute, pass it "explorer.exe", then parameter "/select" and name of the file. I would add this functionality myself, but I work in Object Pascal and don't want to screw up your C++ code :)
