Old description:

This hrev46250.

Add an overlay of e.g. a small pad-lock to indicate read-only folders.
Choose the upper or lower  right side of the icon so it won't collide
with the already existing overlay for special folders (apps, preferences,
develop etc.).

 This hrev46250.

 Add an overlay of e.g. a small pad-lock to indicate read-only folders.

 the already existing overlay for special folders (apps, preferences,
 develop etc.).

 Having (another) overlay icon may become a bit intrusive, esp. when all
 subfolders in a directory gets one. Instead, a tinted folder icon and
 window background may be a better idea.\\
 Query windows are grey tinted, virtual folder could be blue tainted, read-
 only folders could be orange tinted. (IMO orange tinted works better than
 e.g. red. It's also a "Haiku colour".)
