I'm still not spotting the difference between my usage of the term "icon"
and your usage of the term "logo". In the current embodiment of CapDesk,
they get shrunk to 32x32, perhaps that is the issue. Indeed, the term "icon"
does, I guess, imply 32x32 to many people.
I am happy to use the term "logo" henceforth. Indeed, I am eager to use the
term "logo" henceforth. It is actually more correct, because the point is,
it is a visually distinctive graphic representing a unique id, and it may be
any size, the size chosen to fit the context.
