I think that no one would like time penalty (and yes, an extra LaTeX  
processing would be) just to get a nice icon. Keep in mind that this  
discussion about this icon is much ado for not so much ;-)
Actually, the graphics type can be seen in the extension of the file.  
For the graphics content, I won't hide that I personnaly prefer my  
friendly icon (in the context of what these images are, of course),  
and I feel like extend its use not only to pdf and eps, but also  
jpeg, tiff and png. Unless anyone stops me for doing something  
totally silly.

Regards,

Pierre
