Well, as I said, it is common to provide different application icons -
but you are right that we do have a "special case". There is almost no
(at least, I don't know about any) application that is a) one
application, that b) provides different modules, and that c) supports
that many file formats.

Just a side note (I forgot to add this in my last mail): The document
symbol is - of course - also a "promotional" / "branding" element. But
this would be kept for case "a".

Finally, as we say in German (you know), "special problems require
special solutions" ;-)

Given the fact, that time is running ... I'm totally fine with that. So
as far as I understand, we end up with:
* 1 LibreOffice main icon (derived from the document symbol)
* n LibreOffice document icons = application icons
* n LibreOffice document template icons


The one thing, I'm still thinking about is, whether we should keep the
common document metaphor (dog-ear style) for the document icons and the

@ Ivan, Thorsten, Bernhard, ... I'm sorry that I am a bit less creative
how to proceed. The last days (and also the upcoming) at work were/will
be very hard ... so I'm happy if anybody could take care of that. Of
course, I'm still around for discussions or helping with the icons.
