Sorry about the slow reply. FWIW the larger icons are used in windows
if you save the link to the filesystem. In the past it looked like
they might be used elsewhere but I don't think that ever happened so
they're probably not worth it. There's certainly no point in the low
colour versions nowadays. So I've changed the icon on the beta site,
and will update live at some point.
