associate application with directory

I know that one can define file types and associate them with applications, e.g., PDF files, *.pdf, with Acrobat reader or xpdf.

But is it also possible to associate a directory with an application? I have a LaTeX/SGML based publishing application where a "document" consists of a set of files (SGML text, style definitions, DTD, PostScript decorations, etc.), and it would be nice to start the application by just clicking on the directory icon in Konqueror or other browsers.
