Thank you so much, Paulo. Personally, I think the "Style 1" (upper
right) works best. The main reason is, that the shape of the document is
preserved well - although the icon is so tiny. And, the star seems to
appear quite balanced in this version.

I first worried about the orange color, because usually yellow is used
for indicating "new". But of course - yellow is (given the constraints)
almost invisible, so orange seems a great compromise.

What else? Mmh, I think the 14x11px version fits better to the overall
style of the status bar. The larger ones seem to be "out of place"

So, if somebody wants to have a look at it - I've created an example by
adding Paulo's icon to a simple status bar image:

Any further thoughts? To me, it's already an improvement - so I'm happy
to export the icons and create an issue for that.

I'll keep the source ...

By the way, I hope everybody noticed the interview with Paulo - I
discovered more or less accidentally :-)
