Yes, but hasn't the HIG taught you anything? :P

Which should be the default if this is supported?

I think file content is the _right_ method, but if it's blocking usage
of Nautilus then it is being _badly_ implemented.  It should just chug
along in the background, detecting the files and repainting the icons
without interrupting the user.
