Icon for Trash should be 2D, not 3D

Bug Description

Binary package hint: unity

When the launcher moves to accordion mode, icons that don't fit are deformed to make it appear that they have rotated backwards around their lower edge. The deformation is a simple skew, which works as long as the icon is perceived to be a planar object parallel to the screen. However, the trash icon is a 3D wastebasket. Were it to rotate back, we would expect a different view. Instead, the skew deforms the basket into a roll of duct tape (see image). The easiest solution would be to use a more cartoonish 2D image of a wastebasket,

This is seen on Natty beta 2.
