I'm sorry, but I still don't like it, IMHO it really does not fit the
Echo icon theme. But on a more objective note: the icons seems not
optimised for the result sizes - i.e. in 48x48 you have blurry the line
most to the front, in 22x22 the shape seems too complex for a nice icon.
Also, IMHO, if you use the dark brown and medium brown colours from the
Echo palette as a base, it would, IMHO, look much better. I still fail
to see, which box in real live has the colour you used... (and we are
not transporting bananas in the box, but data... ;-)
