I would love to see this happen.

I would also like to see some way of preventing icons from being placed
on top of each other. I'm certain everyone's had to deal with mounting a
device only to have the desktop icon placed right on top of another icon
making for a very unfriendly desktop.

Not that my opinion matters much in this arena[0] I will at least say
that I think what you intend is a good idea and certainly not stupid.
