You can create your own folder type:

,----[ opencms-modules.xml ]
| <type class="org.opencms.file.types.CmsResourceTypeFolderExtended" name="MyFolder" id="501">
| 	<properties>
| 		<property>
| 			<name>MyProperty</name>
| 			<value><![CDATA[Folder]]></value>
| 		</property>
| 	</properties>
| 	<copy-resources>
| 		<copy-resource source="/system/modules/my.module/copy/index.html" target="${resource.folder.path}" type="new"/>
| 		<copy-resource source="/system/modules/my.module/copy/index.xml" target="${resource.folder.path}" type="new"/>
| 	</copy-resources>
| </type>

When you create a new folder of this type two resources are copied to
this folder. Don't forget to add an explorertype node in the xml file.
