`Per File' facts

It would be nice to have `facts' (fields) that could be associated with a `folder' in the same way that `extra-1' and `extra-2' are associated with each article.

I would like to have most of the things you can apply to an article applied to a folder actually. It would be nice to apply templates for one, and I would really like to be able to have an "internal name" vs. "external name" which re-names the folder on the way to the server in the same fashion as articles.

Another interesting side effect, although certainly more work to do, would be to have each folder have a server defined. That way you could have the articles go to your main site, and your pictures (et all) go to a free-bee server somewhere.

That maps nicely into the "make articles containers in their own right" request (presumably with the body rendering to index.html). You'd need the ability to set two templates for container articles, though; one for the container, and one for its children.
