Maybe adding emblems to the folder icons could achieve what you want.
Those emblems superimpose themselves over the folder icon,
you can have a folder with a yellow star superimposed,
another one with a rocket superimposed and so on.
I devised a small utility to be able to add such emblems to a 
directory icon (or a file icon) from the command line (or from a script)
See the chemb project on sourceforge
