Bounty to extend Workbook to replace 3.1.

Workbook is AROS 68k minimalistic desktop. Today its usability is quite limited. This bounty aims at extending the available functions to become a replacement of Workbench as found in AmigaOS 3.1

Bounty will be completed when these functionalities are available in Workbook:

Support standard .info files
Manually position & snapshot icons and windows
Drag & drop icons to copy/move
Make new directories
Delete files & directories
Rename files & directories
View/edit file information/tooltypes
Leave out/put away
Make Show All Files/Show Only Icons work as per description

This functionality needs to be available in the ROM version of Workbook, that is
booting a disk only containing LoadWB command will allow usage of Workbook with
these functionalities.

Additionally the following functionalities can be added at the discretion of the developer:

Support for ToolMenu
List-view mode (view + manage files as in icon mode)

These functionalities are not required to mark bounty as completed.

Please support this bounty:

it is the chance to get a replacement of 3.1. even for low-spec amigas

Why not also include the few missing bits to have functionality of 3.9 Workbench?
For example resize window to fit icons.
