Dear Jessen,
	Thanks a lot for these!  They are very nice.  I assume it's okay for  
us to redistribute these when we make our Chimera software release?   
We will have to do a little work on them to make them completely  
usable in a release.  In particular the "masks" section of the file is  
exactly the same shape as the icon, which is normally what you would  
want.  However, in the case of this icon, with its big "hole" in the  
middle, it's best if the hole is filled in in the mask, so that you  
can double-click on the that part of the icon and have the application  
start up, instead of having to hit the "rim" with your double click.   
Do you have the mask image available in a separate file BTW?
	Again, thank you so much.  These are a noticeable improvement on our  
current set of icons.
