As for 2.1 we should use the icon for that version. Attached.
BTW, any way of forcing the win32 builds to use the executable's ICO
instead of civicon.png as window manager icon? The Windows window
manager can scale its native format with anti-aliasing, while the
Linux-style window manager icon looks craptacular (no anti-aliasing at
all) whatever you do. You can tell the difference very well, since the
ICO shows up in the taskbar for a second or so while starting up,
before the Freeciv code changes it to the PNG.
