Hi all,

a while ago, David mentionned that at least two people from the
#org-mode IRC channel would be interested in having pretty icons in
org-mode buffers. I have to confess I'm the second one :-)

After a little experimentation, I ended up with the results shown in
these screenshots [1] [2].

The code can be found on github [3]. Currently, it is not based
on overlays, like David's linkd.el, but on display properties. It is
still unclear which of the approach is the best, but as David
offered his help and is by far more skilled in elisp than I,
hopefully these kind of implementation details will be solved
quickly and the code will become actually useable.

As for the icons, I make them from scratch using Inkscape and the
Tango [4] colour palette.

So, what do you think ? Is this a direction you'd want org-mode
to go ? Please, share your feedback & suggestions !

Also, I was thinking that putting such kind of screenshots in org-mode's
website could make us gain a little more votes...
