I agree.

One question I have is why are these icons in nt/icons? It seems to me
that etc/images is a better place for emacs.ico. Rather than  litter
etc/images with the old icons, these could go in etc/images/museum or
etc/images/archives or some other reasonably named sub-directory.

I also see images in etc, msdos, etc/tree-widget, and src/bitmaps. It
would be nice if all of these were in etc/images too.

What do people think?
