Folder Input Without shinyFiles?

I want to allow the users of my app to select a folder as the destination for outputted files.

I know I can use shinyFiles to get a folder selection GUI, however, it is not very straightforward to paste the $root and $path elements back into a useable path. Furthermore, setting up the intitial volumes for shinyDirChoose() to use doesn't create the type of folder hierarchy Windows users see. Shiny itself has a nice fileInput() function, and I am wondering if there is anything similar to fileInput() that allows for selection of a folder?
