Be aware that while TDE applications support nonstandard (!= 22x22 pixel)
icon sizes, most other applications do NOT.  TDE tries hard to resize
these other applications as needed, but it doesn't always work properly,
and usually the resized icons are harder to see / blurrier than the native

The reason I know this is that I originally wrote the icon resize feature
for TDE, and did not change the default size to 16x16 for these reasons.
