Most important purpose of the voting to achieve a clear
understanding which metaphor are most sutable for the one or
another icon. Of course later icon guys has collaborate to finalize
icon set to a very one style. Something between all styles currently
presented on a voting page.

What about presented icons. George icons to colorfull and many of
Bogdan icons beautifull but are not consistent with Mac style of icons.
On a file icons paper fold at the bottom, script icons shape are  
then  original Apple script icon.
