What's your vision of this functionality, however useful?
The Network plugin doesn't display nested folders (they are displayed by Far itself).

My vision is so that when you are in list of computer shares you press Alt-F5 (just for example, could be Shift, Ctrl or default as well) and additional dialog appears. It contains two fields and two classic OK/Cancel buttons. First field reflects current share path under cursor and allows to type in additional path directories manually (or paste, whatever). Second field is for choosing desired drive letter.

To conclude the thesis in chapter "future work" I would mention more convenient way to type folder path - like additional "tree" button that will call another child dialog with tree view of share subfolders to choose from. A third field (or rather checkbox) could be implemented to specify permanent/ temporary mapping status.
