 I love the icons. I already commented on most of your older ones back 
on GNUMail, but I want to say that I love the new ones. Especially the 
new 'mailboxes' icon looks absolutely gorgeous!

 Just one idea: Could you maybe draw an opened variant of that mailbox 
with some letters coming out for "get mail"? I could imagine that'd work 
quite nicely.

 I also like your style a lot. It is a nice mix of the old NeXTstep icon 
style, the later "Rhapsody" icon style Apple had, with just a tad of 
Aqua's style as well.

 Yeah, some of the icons aren't frontal, but since most of those refer 
to mailboxes, I wouldn't consider them as breaking the guidelines. of 
course, the IconKit guys may think differently. They would constitute a 
rather liberal interpretation of the guidelines, I guess.

 PS - Having been reminded of you "m4d ic0n d3sign3r skillz" ... I'd 
really love seeing you do an icon set for GNUstep itself. I'm aware that 
this would be a lot of work, and I can't guarantee anyone else but me 
will like or even use them, but after seeing your folder icons, I'd like 
to see how you'd tackle all those other icons...
