Sorry, I have been (and will be again) away for some time. The current icons
were created by an Amiga user many years ago especially for us. He gave them
to us to use freely, though I'd have to dig through many years of email to
find out if he actually gave us a license also. I remember I sent him a CD
set with his icons on there as a thank you for the icons. He only created
the images, the rest of the info files contains the position in the drawer
and maybe a command to call, in our case I think it is just using iconx to
start the shell script. There is nothing secret, and if required I would
hereby place it under the GPL version 2, or any later version (if this
minute amount of bits actually can be placed under any license).
A little search reveals that I actually documented the name:

"Many thanks to Massimo Tantignone for the help with the Amiga icons."

It is just a simple (actually two) bitmaps. As the resolution is fairly
small, I assume they were hand made, it should be possible to create the
swirl with a gimp filter or something similar? But I also agree that we
might want to have some smaller icons. And please put them into the correct
directories so that they can actually be used.
