  Is 8+3 conformance still an issue? Many of the files in Emacs do not
  conform. Still, by putting the icons in mail, you can drop the mail-
  prefix. However, as RMS points out, this may be a namespace
  liability. You'll want to move the mail_* icons from toolbar to mail

  I'm happy to conform with whatever conventions you folks come up
  with. Perhaps we might take this opportunity to do something
  completely different. With *all* of the images.

  How about this?


  Add emacs/images to the load-path. Programs load images with the
  path relative to emacs/images (e.g., "mail/reply"). This keeps the
  names short, keeps the namespace clean, and makes it easier to
  browse all available images.
