It's not the ability to resize icons, as you can already do that with Finder. Rather, it's having icons of varying sizes--even in the same folder or window.

This is actually possible now.
I have seen this as a hint somewhere, I think Macosxhints.
It just is not easy to do.

Have been doing this since gnome 2.8 maybe even before. Original poster *did* mean the ability to stretch an individual icon and not change the size of all icons afaik i have done this as well.
