    anti-files

    a bit like anti-matter. when i copy files around, I can use one command, to copy the contents of a folder. If for whatever reason i need to remove certain files. I'm forever stuck with one line / file. however if I had an anti-file, i'd put it in the folder, make it read only and when all the icons got copied the anti one would wipe out its counterpart. how clever would that be!?
    dunno how to make it tho. feel free steal my idea.

    How would you contain the resultant explosion of bits - there is a danger here of a cascade rm -rf /

    it's more theoretical now but based on stuff I used to do with icons.
