gnome-session: custom icon on startup

Hi all

Some while ago, I asked the question regarding custom gnome-splash icons
for gnome-session. It was in TODO list. It is now still there. The RIGHT
way to do this thing is to modify libgnomeui (gnome-client stuff) to add
the icon into the session record properties. Since this is a long way
(and will break API and/or ABI compatibility), I offer not-so-bad
solution with just 2 lines of code (result of cvs diff):

Index: splash-widget.c
RCS file: /cvs/gnome/gnome-session/gnome-session/splash-widget.c,v
retrieving revision 1.6
diff -r1.6 splash-widget.c
>               pb = get_splash_icon (sw, basename);
>       if (!pb)
This patch just takes the name of the executable (basename variable) and
looks for the icon with same name (and any supported extension:

And as a "last resort", good old gnome-unknown.png will still be used. I
checked the version from CVS - it works perfectly OK for me with this

Could please any of gnome-session owners review these 2 lines and submit
if possible? Since the solution with the session property is rather
expensive (in terms of interfaces breakage and modified code) and I see
no real world situations where appname.png icon is a bad convention - I
do not think this solution is too bad for its price.
