Oops :)

I committed some new icons to stylize the L&C dialog, but whatever I do, I
will not be changing any metaphors or concepts in the icons so
documentation is still relevant. IMHO Gimp is anyway a moving target, and
I am just doing minor cleanup work on the icons so you dont need to worry.

I am also thinking of putting the Balloon splash screen, maybe with some
modifications, into 1.2 when it will be released. 


Speaking of minor stuff, maybe someone could re-arrange the layer mode
menus? Either sort it alphabetically with "Normal" on top and separated
from the rest? Or we could even group different modes together with
separators? Something like this:

        .-------- -- -
Mode:   | Normal     
        +---------- -
        | Behind     
        | Dissolve 
        | Multiply (Burn)
        | Divide (Dodge)
        | Screen     
        | Overlay    
        | Difference  
        | Addition   
        | Subtract
        | Lighten Only  <- do these differ from the above ones
        | Darken Only   <- (addition & subtract) ?
        | Value
        | Hue
        | Saturation
        | Color
        `------ -- -  

Or if someone comes up with a better order, no problem. The idea is the
separators there. Do you think they would be useful?
