Typically icons have to be totally redrawn in the Gimp for 16x16 and other
small sizes according to Jimmac. Here are some tips:

- Avoid perspective, at the sizes Wine works at (32x32 and 16x16)
  perspective just doesn't work. Draw them front on.

- We don't need SVG or large sizes, because Windows doesn't use them.
  48x48 is the max necessary and I'm not sure we actually use them in
  Wine (they are an XP thing)

- I think the current file icon is OK, note that it's got a very clear
  solid outline. At small sizes the lines have been anti-aliased into grey
  which we don't want.
