Glad you like it. BTW, additional "polish" won't affect the icon-sized
images anyway. It would only make the large image more pleasing (if done
correctly), e.g. as a kind of "logo" for webpages or documentation.

One request: Could you include the 48x48px icon with the sources (either
replacing the current version or in addition to it)? AFAIK the 32x32px
is specific to Windows (not sure about Mac, though). At least on Linux
(particularly Gnome), 48x48px is the default for app icons (see e.g.
It's just that downsampling is usually better than upsampling ;).

BTW: I could also do a larger (96x96px or something) version for modern
Windows system (I think they have huge icons, but I'm not sure just how
huge; please advise).

Yippie! :)
