OK! So far we have really great potential in this new set. Must say that
outline could improve look noticably.
I think you accidentaly overlooked main point - inconsistancy between old
ones and new ones - What happened to the arrangement of segments in icons?

Yes, they are. I wanted to spread that positive feeling on new icons,
beside all the critics written down. Don't get me wrong..!
These need outline, too.

We wanted antialiasing of old icons... That's what I ment saying "redraw".

Damn, I guess "redesign" is hard word. Font used for "S" is problem, it
just doesn't fits there (beside rounding pixels, as you pointed).

I disagree with you. It looks clumsy to me. We really need to make this
one more obvious -- by turning it into some kind of (olive?!) green,
perhaps; changing size if it..?!

I agree with you in which way metronome tweaking should be going.
This is not clear to me. What do you think should be done to loop?
Basicly, it looks fine with me -- just another fine pixel-polishing would
have the work completed.
