	Ah ! ;-) out of interest, how many of these do we have still ?

	IMHO it is a nonsense to distribute them. I would prefer to have a
single "missing icon" icon, and a fallback path in the image loader
(vcl/source/gdi/impimage*) that would load those icons when the target
is missing (and preferably log to the console ;-).

	If there are still a significant number of non-icon icons ;-) then it
would be great to add that as an easy-hack in the wiki (if you could?).

	I think the idea was to have something visually easily identifyable to
see the missing icons. But of course, the idea of zipping dozens of the
same non-image indefinitely is really silly ;-)
