Well, "seldom" is the hint for me that this should be done in an
external program :)

Murray Cumming posted a link to one of those, I think...

not sure if that's current, because iconview isn't around that long...

Well, my point is that one doesn't really need that anymore once the
filesystem is indexed...

Strange... find out what program did that :)
