Doesn't sound like it could be used. The idea would be to have actual app-managed widgets with an interface to the file manager for integration (grid style etc).

BTW, the desktop management feature of PCManFM-Qt is optional.
You don't need to turn it on if you don't like it.
Regarding to desktop icons, I just figured out a new idea.
I can add a special mode for desktop widget.
In this mode, pcmanfm-qt does not cover the whole desktop background.
Instead, it only covers a specified area and don't try to manage the
whole screen space.
In this way, we can still manage the wallpaper with razor-qt and
pcmanfm-qt can work just like yet another desktop widget.
Is this acceptable for your needs?
