It was my understanding from readings at the time that that format
_would_ be universally valid as a favicon.ico file.  I have no idea if
this is true, for lack of access to legacy Win32 machines.  If someone 
could verify that, it would be useful.

To answer the implied question, no, I don't mind keeping that one
Unisys-entangled file around.  They can kiss my ass on their legal
claim, and the favicon.ico matter only warrants a small amount of
my trouble in the first place.

Cheers,                                      Right to keep and bear
