Right, sorry if I made it sound that way. I simply think round icons
would just look and feel good.

Why is that ?

Sure :) I didn't make a full mockup of the session window since I'm not
sure about what it would look like, but I did make a try at designing
four icons :

*These are not yet optimized for their "real size"* (they would be much
smaller), I just believe a bigger size will make the discussion (what
kind of icons should be done) easier for now. Shrinking them to their
real usable size will probably need a few more adjustments.

All right, I am willing to keep working on those until people on this
list are satisfied (at least I hope I'll be able to do that), so don't
hesitate to suggest other things. I made these just to let the
discussion begin.
