There are several problems with that:
- it would take a lot of disk activity to check for such folders, check
if the ini file already exists and if not create one, then refresh the
folder to make the new icon appear
- what if the user already has an ini file in the folder? For example, I
have most of my folders changed the icon to something 'special' - that
way I can identify the different projects I'm working on and it is fun.
- You have to set the 'system' flag on the folder, which some people
don't like if that happens.
