Tracker: style fixes to VirtualDirectoryEntryList


# 1c29b26e 29-Jun-2013 Ingo Weinhold <ingo_weinhold@gmx.de>

Add virtual directory feature to Tracker

Similar to stored queries, files of the virtual directory type behave
like directories -- i.e. they open in a list-mode Tracker window and
show up as an item with submenu in navigation menus. The file itself is
a plain text file in driver settings format. It can have an arbitrary
number of "directory" entries, which specify the paths of (actual)
directories for which the virtual directory provides a merged view. The
view will not show duplicate entries. For non-directory entries the
first one encountered (according to the order the directory paths are
specified in the file) will be shown. A subdirectory entry will again
behave like a virtual directory.

The support in Tracker isn't perfect yet. I'm afraid major refactoring
would be necessary to get it there.

The virtual directory file type uses a differently colored version of
the folder icon. Alternatives welcome.
