	And thanks for your input too :-) I tend to agree that the mask color
is an unfortunate anachornism, and a glogal removal would be a
worthwhile project - can we spec. up an Easy Hack to build a list of all
places it is used, and start going through them removing them :-)

	I liked all your suggestions except:

	Well - as you know, git compresses things rather well; unfortunately it
can't compress things in archives ;-) so - if we simply move these into
place, git will detect the movements and only store the artwork once -
better, if the icons change, as we merge it will update the files in the
new locations ;-)

	If by contrast we tar them up, we end up with a big, un-workable binary
blob, that is then further attempted to be compressed: so we just bloat
our git repo un-necessarily.

	I suggest we stick with an un-compressed icon set fo hicontrast.
