'Copy as Path' - Vista's Best Feature

Arguably one of the best features in Vista for those who live in Explorer with files and directories appears by holding down the Shift key when right-clicking a file or folder:

Copy as Path copies the full path of the file or folder selected as text to the clipboard that can then be pasted in email, in code or at the command line.

The full path gets copied as a plain text string, surrounded by quotes to handle any spaces that might be contained in the path/filename.
