Comment 10 for bug 392265

@Luca Ferretti:

Unless I am missing something, your mockup is exactly the same icon that's in trunk

I honestly think it's not visible enough, but if devs want to stick with monochrome-only it's hard to think something better.

I still think a red envelope would make more sense (see the attached screenshot).
