You make it sound like it wouldn't be optional. Maybe the more accurate
wording would be, my client could request an iconset from your client. I
think that this would be useful. Some people may want to trade iconsets,
and it would (of course) be a voluntary process -- nobody could force an
iconset on you, unless you had a poorly designed client that allowed that
to happen.

This is really outside the range of this discussion, but I think the
possibility exists.


OT- Please forgive me Craig, I just can't help myself.
