Please note that I deduced this by going back all the way into the *.xpm version, which
was different.  Fabrizio did a re-design on the current one.  If not, then there would be
a shared ownership possibly.  So barring any copyright assignment, sometimes there might
be co-ownership.  Here, on said ICON, not IMO.
