Bug Description

Hey guys,
  I am wondering why the purple ubuntu unity icon in ccsm has changed!
 Although this icons...as a stand alone icon...isnt bad...within the Tango based ccsm icons it seems a bit out of place.
I admit I need to re do some of the other icons in ccsm for a better theme match,,, but this particular icon kind of stands out,, with no design or color reference to the rest of the theme!
   I understand that a few people still view compizconfig settings manager as a "developer's" tool..but that is an outdated view.
Most people...both new to linux and to compiz are quite aware of the existence of ccsm and want it. I have yet to support anyone that refused to install or use it.
  Under those circumstances... I am still confused about the original icon being replaced for this plugin.
 This is one of the originals http://dl.dropbox.com/u/132551/compiz-unity/ubuntuunityplugina.svg
 I also understand,,,or have been told ..that "Unity" is a product... I completely understand that but then so is compiz for that matter.
  Compiz has it's own official font... logo ...and icons

would it be possible for someone to explain this switch... in more rational terms than "Unity is a product"?
thanks :)

We need a better icon for Unity - I knocked this one up quickly but am
quite delighted to have it replaced with something more stylish by
someone with better technique!

Hey all,,
  Well I have been doing the ccsm icons for a bit now and have come up
with a few examples that I have already passed on to smspillaz for
compiz... although smspillaz felt it might be better to address with
#ayatana
None the less ,, here are the ones I proposed for ccsm;
