A square is obviously pretty generic; it has meaning in the above cases
because of _context_ (the presence of other more recogizable icons
around it), but would be fairly meaningless alone.

The commercial graphical debuggers I've used have all used either a red
circle or a red octagon (== stop sign).

I'd rather be consing.
