So I was reading up on the difference between the CC
license used for the tango icons that I have adapted
for the editor (actually the license is CC-BY-SA), and
according to this page
it is incompatible with the GNU GPL. :(

I'll ask again on the forums for some graphics artists to
contribute a new icon set for the editor (the current set
is not that great anyway, being the result of my noobish
gimp skills and pilfered from unrelated sources, giving
the whole set a rather inconsistent style, and also
lacking a military base icon). Anyway wasn't this the
project with more artists than coders? hehe
