These icons are absolutely awesome.  The reconnection animation is by
far better than nm-applet's default circular animation.  My only
recommendation as far the colors go is maybe try an orange color like
used in go-home or the lighter teal/blue color of the system-logout
icons.  The lighter green is a bit bold especially on darker themes.

Again great work and I've been testing these icons since you uploaded.
