Oh, is there a way around this requirement too?  A few days ago
someone here at OLE Nepal bundled up Firefox 2 and was disappointed
to get the infamous circle icon.  For them, changing the code and
rebuilding from source would be overkill.

(please don't ask me why Firefox 2... it might have been any large
Linux application)

If nobody has looked at this before, I might give it a shot
to see what the Gnome wnck applet does to pair windows with
their applications and desktop icons.
