Hi Andreas!

Is there a sane user case for when you need to use these labels?
The only one I can think of is "I have both a Blueray and a HDDVD player on my machine. I inserted both yesterday and they are both movie X, now I can't tell them apart". Not a very common situation though. I personally never found labels like these helping since I only use one disc media at a time and with different titles. Instead they tend make things look more busy, especially at the smaller sizes.

That's one of the reasons it is not differentiated in 16x16. At bigger
sizes one of the reasons might be (re)writeable media - having although
you most likely know what media you have put in your drive, I've already
met people who thought they were using CD while it was a DVD... Also, in
the isometric perspective the text helps (subjectively) to define the
perspective. Also, for some reason I don't know, upstream default (gnome
icon theme) does that distinction as well.
Makes sense. It's not in upstream gnome-icon-theme, but is a fedora-specific patch, currently being discussed in http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=506532 Sorry for mixing up the name, I work with a Martyn, so hence the grammar error.
