This is really nice, I agree with this and I support this move. And I'll suspend
all of my icon creations until this guideline is a bit more complete so I can
actually use it. Would be nice if this document is hosted on GNUstep.org.

I don't have any money to donate (really!). One point is, people who
aren't really an artist but having designing skill can give some good ideas
in general. So I'm expecting more ideas from people like mpt or Deek
(even the NeXTb0rg one!)

The guideline should be complete with both visual examples and have
descriptions on every line, curve, their thicknesses, the degree of isometric
(eg, so it won't cause too much space around the icon or if we should go
oblique), etc. Also, what about vector icon? Supporting that could result
a big flick in the scheme.
