I'm sorry, I wasn't clear.  There is no such app.  I was wishing  
there were, and trying to define the ease of use I'd like to see in  
such a program.

An IconAssign application, created in Rev, that would allow the user  
to design an icon in whatever icon design program worked best for him  
or her. IconAssign would ask what icon file to import.  If the icon  
files were incorrect or incomplete, it would tell you how they were  
incorrect or incomplete and explain what you'd need to do to fix them.

If all was well, it would ask which Standalone to assign the icon  
to.  You would choose the standalone, click on an "Assign Icon"  
button, and then it would do just that... place the icon correctly  
into the standalone.  It would know what to give a Windows, OS X, Mac  
Classic, Linux standalone to make the icon display correctly in those  
environments.  All done in Revolution.  All eliminating the need for  
the Rev developer to learn the intricacies of icon building for each  
platform he or she wanted to deploy to.

Wishfully thinking,
