Hi Paul,

Pardon me if this is answered somewhere in the archives; I couldn't find
it. Were these icon decisions made based on any prior HCI work in this
area, or was this a design decision of the OTR time? If the former, could
you point me at it? (If the latter, could you point me at the best
summary of the rationale behind it, and any alternatives considered?)
