Help. How do you insert a custom icon into your standalone?

Oh, I'm not sure about that. If you look at the free and commercial icon 
editors mentioned, you'll see there's quite a bit to them beyond simply 
resizing a PNG. An embedded field where you could drag an image would be 
convenient, but it would probably result in poor-quality icons at the 
smaller sizes and bit depths.

But, you might want to file the enhancement request in Bugzilla anyway :)
