Distinguish between ntf and nsf on workspace icons

As a developer, you usually have multiple icons of the same database on your workspace in the Notes client: Template, Test, Production, ...

Currently, it is not possible to see which of the icons belongs to the template. We add something like "(Template)" to the template name, but if the name is too long, this is not displayed any more.

Thus, please add some functionality so that templates can be identified immediately. One idea would be an additional, small icon in the corner of each ntf as I did in the first attached picture. Or use the same logic that is already used in the Domino Administrator to determine the displayed icon (see second attached picture).

Maybe even add an option in the database properties to mark a database as template because some customers use nsf-templates.

    I use different icon colors for templates. For example, I use a lot of blue in icons for production databases and change those colors to red for templates.

    Having them in different colours of background on workspace, or words would be good. As developer it would be nice to have option of including design template names on icons - both for databases and their templates too - or in a hover over popup box.

    Labling them something different and using a 'template' icon isn't that difficult is it?
