Hey, let's get this straight here, he's not trying to be *nice* to them...

There must be some flameMS sites that have suitable ico's already prepped
for this sort of abuse.  They're probably already using them as their own
favicon files anyway.  Meanwhile I recommend using an xpm, that ought to blow 
the thing's tiny little mind.

If someone feels like cooking an xpm to the purpose, I can probably turn it
back into an ico (of the oldest variety).  But as I really don't care what
OS people use...  I have more interesting art to craft.
