What about storing the Icons in some kind of database ?
You could store filename + size + some bytes or so ... (something to
the program / picture / whatever)

 - you don't have 100's of files in your home-dir
 - you could move the files, without loosing the icon
 - you could easily compile icon packages, with some standart icons ...
 - you must program the database :)
 - you need to build some tools for in/output
