It could be good to add, possibly as a plugin, a file manager, who will allow to delete and rename files even for formats that are composed of multiple files (e.g. shapefiles, tif+tfw)

I'm not sure, but some time ago Garry Sherman announce his GeoApt Data Browser (http://geoapt.com/geoapt-data-browser) and say that in future it will be integrated into QGIS.

Also there is a wxGIS project (http://code.google.com/p/wxgis/) which include wxCatalog - an ArcCatalog-like application. wxCatalog can manage formats that are composed from multiple files and support drag'n'drop in QGIS.

An integrated solution would be far more attractive for most users

What about QGIS File Browser plugin? It lacks editing capabilites but it's a great improvement.

What about QGIS File Browser plugin?

File management operations could be implemented in that and/or in the Qbrowser standalone app which comes with QGIS now.
