I find the current CCL icon somewhat unsuitable for purpose. It is 
hard to spot on a neutral gray desktop (see attached screen grab). 
Some clicks on the icon on the desktop do not select the file (I 
assume due to lack of contrast). It's flintstone carved 3D effect 
appears 2D when rendered small (such as in a cluttered Doc). The cyan 
background has a weak gradient but does not appear as an Aqua effect. 
In a folder listing the CCL icon appears as a scratchy squiggle or 
hieroglyph. The general impression to me is substandard and doesn't 
do justice to the phenomenal environment which CCL is. It seems not 
up to first class Cocoa/Aqua citizenship yet.

If it is not baked, can we volunteer Mk2 versions?
