[Tango-artists] Wine Icon Refresh

I suck at writing licensey stuff, but the gist of it is that all of the
icons I converted to .ico can be used under the licenses that the original
PNGs and SVGs were (anything less on my part would be in violation of those
licenses anyways) ... for the most part, everything that's not a Gnome bit
was (at least at the time?) cc-by-sa, and I made sure not to mix cc-by-sa
and GPL material into composite icons. There are a few Windows-specific ones
I remember making, like Regedit, and I seem to recall throwing a clause in
my not-a-license-agreement that they could be used under whichever of the
CC-by-SA or GPL make more sense. I don't have any problems with my stuff
(the stuff in the "vertigosity" subfolder, namely) being used under the
LGPL, for license compatibility with Wine.
As for making pixel-perfect shadowless magic-pink transparency versions, I
never really got much further than just hand-tweaking everything, which was
horribly tedious. Some of the Gnome stuff worked pretty well, but there's
just so many bezier curves in Tango(id) icons that eventually you just have
to give up and let a few lines go to pot. I never really got around to
polishing it up or packaging it, but let me know if you want it, and I'll
blow the dust off it and at least send you a tarball.
