There's an easy way to get rid of all these questions.
In normal cases, when there' not an icon file right next to the file, the
desktop looks at mimetype of he file and the shows the right icon taken from a
central place.
If you put a custom icon (file.icon or or whatever you want) right
next to the file the desktop will use the custom icon.
This way you can look and manipulate any normal directory with shell tools,
and this leaves us the choice to use custom icons that should be handled with
the desktop (which in my opinion should take the place of the shell for
everyday use).
