Hmm, yeah, I think your right. Especially the last point is ugly, I
know. But it was the simplest way to create the patch, and I didn't want
to spend to much time on it, without knowing if it gets aproval ;-)

However, I just had an idea that would make the whole patch somehow
dispensable: What about simply adding an "hidden"-option to the
properties-window of a file? This would then create/edit an .hidden file
in the directory.
