That's what I added couple of years ago. It distinc the same file types, MC
showss as a very first column - '/', '@', '*', '!', '|', '-', ' '.

This is based on a file type plus broken symlynks.

The reason, why I'm a bit afraid of extension based coloring(and why I didn't
implement it) was the limit on the color pairs which one of the curses libraries
sets - 32 or 64, anyhow, very low.

I dunno, is this an issue for ncurses and slang, which are the only defaults now.

In general, I'd like to get rid of color pairs and be able to use simply fore-
ground and background colors.
