:-D Do you want to be part of our marketing team? ;-)

*I* am the reason for the 0.8 release delay! :-)

In fact:

 * The icon is colorful and nice;

 * I like the idea of having distinct graphical layout for the official
   and demo server. So your icon could be used for the demo server.

Regarding your patch:

 * I would prefer putting the icon into the misc/ directory, alongside
   the "official" demexp logo (demexp.xpm). In fact, I would like to
   have both your icon and the official one on Unix and Win32 platform;

 * Could you rename demexp.ico into demexp-demo.ico?

 * I would prefer that you rename gtk2-clnt/demexp.o into
   gtk2-clnt/demexp-info.o or something like that;

 * Shouldn't we put the demexp.rc into the win32/ directory? And rename
   it demexp-info.rc (to be coherent with previous remark)?

 * At mid term, it would be nice to generate content of demexp.rc from
   content of demexp.nsi or another external file, in order to have a
   coherent numbering scheme and other application info.

Could you resubmit a patch? I could do it myself but I can't check that
it works. If no let me know and I'll make the modifications myself.

BTW, do you use Mercurial? If yes, it is quite easy to export a set of
patches and their comments with "hg export" command.

So many remarks for a single icon! ;-)
