some time ago, someone posted in python-list about icons using the Python
logo from the new site design [1]. IMO they are looking great and would
be a good replacement for the old non-scaling snakes on Windows in 2.5.

While we're at it, Python (and IDLE) .desktop files could be added to the
distribution, making it easier for newbies on *ix platforms to start up
a shell or the IDE, together with .png versions of the new icons. A pre-
liminary .desktop file is available at [2], I have already created a
corresponding Makefile rule locally.

What do people think?
