You know that "scripts" menu you can show in the right side of the menu bar? It's very useful. I'm talking about this menu:

Menu Bar

I've set some custom icons for the files in the scripts folder using the Get Info window, but these icons aren't showing up in the menu. Is this something that will automatically show up next time I reboot, is there some hidden setting I need to change, or is this just not (yet) possible?

Yes, if you make your own app you can choose the icon that's displayed. – Alex Apr 28 '13 at 9:04
