i added a new "type" of icon: Dialog. this augments Desktop, Panel, Toolbar, MainToolbar, etc. i was tired of my large desktop icons making every icon that appeared in a dialog to appear ginormous. no more! so adjust your usage from Desktop to Dialog where appropriate. i need to do that in a few places in kdeui, actually =) i'd also like to add a FileManager icon type so that the desktop and file managers can also go their separate ways.
what other icon types should be special cased?
