[Qgis-developer] icons

Hi Robert

I've been using QGIS with your gis icon theme (including grass and
plugin updates) and I must say I really like using the theme and the
cohesive look it brings to QGIS.

The one area left that I have a problem with is the load / save / save
as icons. No matter how much I try to memorise what the up arrow
signifies versus the down arrow, I find I just cant  get used to them,
and invariable end up clicking the wrong one. Even worse, if one doesnt
read the dialog title carefully and end up using the save project icon
instead of the load project, you can wipe out your project file.

Could I suggest trying some other paradigm for these icons - I
appreciate that floppy disks are an anachronism but perhaps there is
something else that will provide instant recognition...

Thanks for the great work you have done!

Best regards
