Well, I'm not an artist, so I have to work with what's available. The
current  icons are taken from the Gnome project and the works of Jakub

My line of thinking for the Users and Groups icons was something like
this: Even though it says "Users", you're only really editing one user
at a time. Whereas "Groups" applies to more than one user. And so I
found these two icons, representing, in my view, "one user" and "more
than one user" and went with it.


While I agree that it better represents the "groups" idea, I think it's
a little too crowded to fit in well with the other icons. IMHO as a non-
artist only, of course. I'd box to the majority, though.

bye, Dirk
