Scott, this icon is linked to a configuration option for mapedit called 
warehouse_mapfiles.  In this configuration item, you can specify the 
path to one or more mapfiles.  If you have specified at least one 
mapfile then this icon is enabled.  Clicking the icon will display a 
treemenu dialog with one main branch per mapfile.  Under the map branch 
will be a list of layers defined in the mapfile.  Clicking a layer will 
add the entire layer to the current mapfile.  Note that it will copy the 
layer 'as-is' and will not attempt to correct any differences in paths 
to the actual data source.

The intention of this feature is to allow you to create mapfiles that 
contain layers that you commonly use and to quickly re-use them in new
