    I'm a bit concerned about the extra stat per directory.
    Perhaps the emblem could still be called .DirIcon, but have
    a PNG attribute set to indicate that it's an emblem?

    You probably want an attribute anyway, to give its position...

    I thinks it better to have it orig. way for these reasons:
    1. easy of use: everyone knows how to copy file (image) into
    directory, and few knows how to assign attributes to an PNG
    image
    2. you can have separate dir icon and emblem: say image of
    smb share (diricon) with each day different emblems
    (diremblem) :-)
    3. you can applay emblems for AppDirs to their own icons
    (quite same as #2)
    4. if extra syscall is an issue, then gui config can have a
    option to ignore diremblems

    But main reason is easy of use and simplicity: cp image.png
    $TARGET/.DirEmblem - and you've done!!

    And last but not least - thanks for rox.
    hope i can contribute to it :-)
