Is there a way to create folders within speedbar?

I am using sr-speedbar and to add a folder I am using the dired mode like:

Ctrl+X D (C-x d), then + to create a directory.

M-x speedbar-create-directory


use the keyboard shortcut: M

In any buffer in Emacs, it is always helpful to type M-x describe-mode or C-h m and read the *Help* buffer that contains useful information regarding what interactive functions are bound to keyboard shortcuts, and so forth ...

In my case, I prefer to read the source code -- I typed M-x find-library RET speedbar RET and I searched for the function make-directory (which lead me straight to speedbar-create-directory), and I also saw speedbar-create-directory in the keyboard shortcuts section of the code.
