Comment(by nfarina@…):

 It appears that everyone has their own strategy to simulate folders in S3:

 Cyberduck creates 0-length objects with Content-Type
 "application/x-directory" (the most elegant solution I believe)

 S3 Firefox Organizer creates 0-length objects with a special name: "My

 s3sync creates objects with a known ETag and GUID string contents (this
 makes it impossible for anyone else to know it's a folder, sadly).

 So that sucks, too bad there isn't a canonical solution. I can't see how
 it would make sense for Cyberduck to know about all these other janky
 simulated folder strategies, but I think it could at least expose all the
 files instead of hiding the directories as it does now.
