r> * we have to accept cp, mv, rm etc. are NOt goign to deal wlll with ANY

mine would work, that was one of the reasons i opted for that approach.
r> * using icon files is piss-easy to impliment - it's simple, easy, hard
r> to break (ie the KISS prinicple. Keep It Simple Stupid) so corupt
r> databases aren't a possability - it also will speed up implimentation
imho *both* are out for the disadvantages. databases - no discussion. but .info
files will break with every shell command you use, will break if you symlink
files (how many symlinks do you have on your system? run a find and tell me),
they will clutter all directories, eat up inodes and kill wildcard use and
please, pretty please, forget about this really bad idea.
