But anyway, the alpha *is* "safe" for other OS (well maybe not for NT, 
but I haven't heard back from haro about icon_test9 which seems to work 
fine for Alexander). It may not be to your taste but it is recognizable 
as the X logo.

Which one? The monochrome one? Or the one with the white background? 
Maybe the old one with the white specks? And how do you do the "runtime" 
thingy when XWin isn't running and Windows displays the icon in Explorer?

Maybe Halrold should only distribute the source code, and let people 
recompile xwin.exe by themselves that way they can choose their own 
prefered icon for the binary.

All that just for a stoopid icon. Baah...
