How about the first idea as default, dealing with mount points and
anything on the panel.
However, you could implement the matching-on-directories feature as an
option so people could define icons for anything if they wanted. This
would override the previous idea.
I was looking at a few screenies of Nautilus the other day, and I noticed
what may be a similar feature, but extending it somewhat. Directories and
files appeared to have extra images overlaid in some cases, to indicate
properties such as 'draft', or 'proof-read'. Having the ability to
