Note in data/COPYING that the terminal icon and the DMZ cursors
(whatever they are), are already being included as CC-SA.

Regarding mixing of different licenses for code vs. data, this is a
common practice elsewhere - you'll frequently see games with FOSS source
code and proprietary graphics (I seem to recall this is even spelled out
in a GNU or CC faq somewhere), and the code-as-GPL&art-as-CC tradition
appears pretty widespread in GNOME at least.

Anyway, but with that said, I'll update the patch to dual-license the
icons, to remove any concern you have before providing your R-b.  I'm
fine with having them under different licenses, and was merely following
the gnome icon precidents.
