Heh, I don't remember (and I am too lazy to look in archives)... Anyway,
my opinions do change, evolve. Where I said definitive NO a year ago,
does not mean I'd to the same today. Though I don't change my opinions
on a daily basis, they are not "set in stone". I wonder what my reason
was back then, perhaps I felt Echo should have been darker, or didn't
wanted much to touch original Diana's designs... Or now I've just become
accustomed to the 24x24 version of the mail icons (which are similarly
bright to my current designs) and gnome mail icons...

Does it? I'd argue that the current looks is closer to gnome icons than
oxygen ones...

We were asked to base our work on Tango in the past, now we are asked to
base it on Oxygen... My only reply to that is: we're neither and we
won't throw our past work away ;-)
