Infolders – Informative Folders

There’s an old idea that has been floating around, about using varying folder icons to convey a little more information. Like switching to an icon of an old, used, dusty folder for folders that havn’t been touched in a long time or using more or less stuffed folder icons.

But what if we move a bit away from the graphical side of the folder metaphor, to have more room for information about contents?
