I think a different image should be used; KDE's Crystal developent
icon [a1] is a bit bland compared to Echo's style but the mimetype
icon for Kig [a2] looks good for development. I can see where you are
coming from looking at Bluecurve's package-development but I think we
can do better than that.

I propose a 'screen designer' style icon; perhaps the following ideas may help:
- the screen behind a pencil and set square (similar to accessories)
- screen behind the 'applications-other' icon or similar
- screen with text or code on it, keyboard or pencil in front -
reminiscent to 'text-x-script'
- keyboard, pencil, cogs

Any thoughts?
