Sure. It's a Midnight/Norton Commander-style file manager (OFM) built
atop of dired.

Dired  is also  a  "file manager",  it  just belongs  to a  different
family.

Not instead  -- it is  dired. More properly  said, it's a  major mode
derived from dired, with a few added functions to make it work like a
two-pane commander and some (rather simple) integration with terminal
modes. Regular dired functionality remains untouched.
