Colors in the file browser (e.g., color symlinks)

Is there a way to have files and colors in the Files panel to have different colors?
For example in *nix systems symlinks (i.e., shortcuts) are typically in a light blue color.

I've been having problems when people clone repositories or work on a remote system, and they are being really confused because they cannot distinguish a symlink and the original folder/file.

Along these lines, files and directories with execute privileges to the group and other are also colored in green and/or background colored in green.
