Here are some disadvantages of the old icon:
 - we don't have an svg version of it.
 - we don't have a full set of sizes. Here are the sizes that are
 present on Fedora8:
   16x16  22x22  24x24  32x32  36x36  48x48  64x64  72x72  96x96  128x128  
192x192 scalable
 not all applications provide all of them.  It would be hard to provide
 the bigger sizes.
 - we don't have versions for Mac and for windows (this one probably can
   be arranged)
 - it was a one off thing, the author has not been active in emacs after
 doing it.

The advantages for the new one:
 - it looks better IMO
 - the author has been willing to refine the icon, so he has an interest
 in emacs.  Given that we don't really have contributors that can do
 things like this, we want to attract future possible contribution on
 the artistic side. We do need more and better icons for the tool-bar.
