A minor issue: the design idea for the icon bears some resemblance to  
the icon of the commercial Textures application from Blue Sky TeX  

See for example <http://www.bluesky.com/news/220b.html> for the color  
version (the application icon is shown in the screenshot of the Show  
Info window at the top of the page) and <http://www.bluesky.com/news/news.html 
 > for the grey scale version.

The icon dates back to the late 1980s when the application, owned by  
Addison-Wesley and having their logo as icon, moved to the newly  
created Blue Sky Research and got its icon (the uppercase T in a  
rectangular frame).

Not sure that's really a problem, though, given Textures seems dead by  
now (no new beta version for almost 9 months).
