as such the icons in illume/e are just the filemanager - but i chose to flatten
it and not make it have subfolders to keep it simple. i don't intend to work on
that as i have other plans that need to change a lot of the code structure
(desktop will move more to multiple gadgets with gadman and so on where a
launcher is just one of several gadgets).
