i saw this "hack" at kde-apps.org(http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=12314).
with this "hack" we can add icons to directorys(and maybe add a run option by hacking konqueror code).
the trick is to put a .directory file to each directory with this informaion:
[Desktop Entry]
Comment={generals comments}
Icon={icon name}

Right, this is possible, but it breaks the principle of having one file per application and this is why klik won't use it.

yes it`s true but if we could make a Directory that have a icon and when you click it,it will run the app it will be a "one file per application"(just this file hava a lot of files but the end-user don`t need to know coz the only thing that he see is a icon that run a application)

We need "one file per app" so that people can e.g. e-mail applications. One folder per app isn't good enough.
