I like this concept. I had been thinking about a single key in some 
form or another for a while now. I also think the SubEthaEdit icon is 
brilliant. Perhaps we could leverage that concept -- except have one 
person (or robot?), instead of three, manipulating the pencil.

Drew -- thanks for the icon color study. Good stuff! But I'm not sure 
if it's a logical conclusion to base the icon's palette on colors which 
have yet to have been used by other apps. I think one must take into 
consideration the psychology of color beforehand.
