I'm done with finishing & exporting the icons,
they now weight in at 2MB, that's about 500KB
more than the old icons.

I'm currently working on creating the patch.
Setting the icon file for a specific file type is done via Info.plist  
I've modified the Info.plist file for the new icons and am
currently testing them if the associations work correctly.

The Info.plist includes 56 document types (VLC 0.9.9),
vlc-interface.h around 70. Can I be sure that all document types
are specified in Info.plist or should I add some?

The .vlc document type is a playlist, is that right?

Should spx files have the OGG icon or a generic audio icon?

Somehow my mkv-files get the generic icon, not the mkv icon, any idea  

How shall I supply the patch? Just the info.plist and the icons in a  
resource folder?
