I really like the Matthias's idea of just having the naming scheme
extended to add emblems.

My only concern is that you can't specify where the emblem goes.  This
could be important for consistancy.  For example, I'm interested in
adding svn emblems for files.  This would look nicest if the svn
emblem is always in the same position
