[Bug 1173622] Re: Boinc Manager icon in Unity is small

Converting from png to xpm is as easy as "convert *.png boincmgr.xpm"

But I'm not sure if it's a good idea... png is more universal and has more capabilities than xpm. And since xpm images are often detected as C text files (well, they are), some very misleading behavior occurs: git reports my patch as deleting 500+ code lines (when I only deleted 2 icons), and all BOINC xpm files in client/res are invalid because they contain C (and C++) license / copyright notice comments *before* the /* XPM */ header. So they don't thumbnail, no editor besides eog cannot open them, etc. Images should be regarded as binary anyway.

But... nice catch on the lintian warning, I missed that one :)
