Funny, I never knew any other method - I don't say this with a sense of 
superiority but simply that I don't know how else to do it. All my 
intialisation is done in a "startup" handler, and testing in the IDE 
usually starts by opening the splash screen and typing

  send "startup" to this stack

into the message box. I am intrigued to know how else other people have 
been doing this - maybe by using an "openStack" handler in the splash?

I've built some good OS9 and Windows XP icons with Iconographer itself. It 
seems well aware of the formats.
