Bug Description

Lack of hover state for this icon makes it feel non-clickable. Click action does not feel right either, as you don't see any immediate feedback (e.g. color or bg change).

I'd suggest making the icon glow on hover (similar to folder icon behaviour) and go darker on click.

The change is not trivial and required modifications to gtk to allow doing such changes in nautilus later

Isn't this a feature implemented in Gtk-Sharp by the Banshee team? I'm thinking about the "Rating" row.

Banshee has a completely different tree view code base.

Upstream bug report indicates that this is a difficult fix due to GtkTreeview complexity; not a paper cut.
