It looks kind of ugly in GNOME3, where it is scaled up to some other
resolution in the top bar. IIRC Windows 7 uses 64x64 max, Mac OS X
128x128 max, GNOME 48x48(?).

When we add icons for Gtk+ and Cocoa we might also want to rename the
file to indicate size and/or purpose (e.g., qemu-sdl-icon.bmp /

For Windows, wouldn't it be a better idea to use the multi-resolution
.ico format through version.rc and to avoid the generic SDL icon being
used? Don't see that being set up in this patch - #ifdef it out there?
