So that would be the “old” (beta 3) icon actually!?!

I think Torstens icon has personality, which a gear lacks. But
unfortunately the ghost is not easy to place on other icons (like
document/plugin icons etc.), and it does perhaps remind one too much of
SEE (which is not really bad, but could leave one with the impression
that TM is playing catch-up to SEE by mimicking it's icon etc.).

I also like Ethan's gear. Justin showed me an enhanced version of it,
still it easily blends in with a bright background, but I think Justin
is communicating with Ethan about this.
If Ethan is okay with it, I may try it out for beta 6. None of this is
official btw, I'm just giving each of the icons I like a week or so of
And if you wonder why I say beta 6:
this will be beta 5, but I'll add a few other things also, so people
not using the editor API will still see the benefit of updating ;) ).
