I do not mean to appear rude, but is not any image involving film or
film-oriented production (e.g. clapper board) old school? I am 40
years old now, and I do remember my father splicing 8mm film, but I
doubt many even in my generation was exposed to it. However, I do not
disagree that people still recognize and understand it, and I
personally do like nostalgia. If we have an old school image, maybe it
should have a more nostalgic, weathered, and dirty look as opposed to
this clean one. :-)

We had someone contribute a new icon not too long ago, but it was
dismissed as being too similar to a trademarked one from a commercial
offering in this space. So, be careful of that. I do not think this is
similar to anything from a big commercial vendor, but it would not
surprised me if it is the same as something from a lower end Windows

FWIW, I prefer something more abstract and less generic or obvious,
which is probably counter to the Oxygen approach.
