Comment 2 for bug 1056488

First and foremost I'll apologize if these )proposed) patches are incorrect I'm not entire familiar with creating them.

What I've done is created patches using icons I created screenshots here:

Just in case, an archive of the icons here:

For Humanity/status/*/user-* icons:
1. I thought a uniform shape and size would be most elegant, and the simplest shape: a circle
2. Applied the same colour gradient as the old icons, but no drop shadow.
3. To convey status with out purely being colour different, I emblazoned the circles with symbols to convey status.

For the ubuntu-mono-*/status/*/indicator-messages-* I simply used 16px icon of the Humanity icons as an overlay, but making it larger than the pre-existing.
