Agreed.  That being said, I like this different icon very well: in
particular the GNU-horn similarity, the E/M ambiguity and the overall
polishedness are a step forward.

But to make it stick, all icons would need to be adapted, and we are
too late in the game for that.  But I think that a variation of that
icon would probably be good for Emacs 23, so we should keep it in mind
and definitely ask the contributor both for an assignment, and whether
he would be willing to work on a complete set.

In the mean time, it would appear that something more in line with the
current icon design would be more appropriate for MacOS with Emacs 22.
