[Uml-devel] Umbrello icon proposal

Being this only a proposal, everything is possible.

The tool I use is Inkscape, though being a gtk/gnome app, I love it, it
works like charm. And yes, they are available as SVG, though I had some
problems with viewing them in Konqueror (however, I am working on that). The
license for icons is normally do-with-it-what-you-want (DWIWYW) a.k.a. LGPL.

Other icons are to follow.

If text is not ok, I will replace it with XYZ ar anything similar. The arrow
icon will be replaced (I would suggest a crosshair, though).

I have to go now. Have 1..* nice day
