Bug Description

It's would be cool to have a possibility to change the default folder icon, also in the panel.
This might be used by users to change the folder of cloud services and might be used by cloud service plugins in the future like dropbox, google drive..

In nautilus , you can do that by changing the .config/users-dirs.dirs and adding new folders for example
XDG_DROPBOX_DIR="$HOME/Dropbox"
and the name between XDG and DIR is used for the folder icon , if this icon do exists use it, if not use the default one

Changed in pantheon-files:
status: New → Confirmed
importance: Undecided → Wishlist

@Jeremy There's a bounty on this, can you add that to the description/title?

I'd really like to see this implemented too. How do I go about adding to the bounty?
