Actually, it's probably not feasible but my dream icon would involve
an otter. Linus Torvalds likes penguins. I like otters.
(Not that I am in any way ranking myself with Linus Torvalds)
My son drew a picture of an otter holding a floppy once that I had
intended to use on the cygwin web page but I lost the picture. :-(
I don't know if you can get a recognizable otter in 96x179 but if
you can, I'd love to see it.
