Yes please! The current icon is really just a placeholder, "borrowed"  
from stuff I did 15 years ago when 32x32 pixel bitmaps were  
appropriate, and certainly doesn't stand up to today's standards.

I've mentioned this before, and a couple of people expressed an  
interest in possibly working on something, but so far nothing has come  
to fruition. Personally, I don't have the graphic design skills needed.
