	I really think the small icons are a usability, and legibility disaster
when used on large screens - and there is a real risk of selecting them;
if the Mac people get their DPI settings together that's great, Linux
doesn't (of course).

	Can't be based on DPI; that is mostly fixed.

	My concern is for Windows really - I'd want the vast majority of users
