if anyone wants to give icons support in dzen a first try should
checkout svn trunk:

    svn checkout http://dzen.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ dzen

The expected syntax to load and display icons is: ^i(icon_location)

I created 3 icons for testing purposes, try this out from within dzen's

echo "^i(bitmaps/volume.xbm) Volume icon ^i(bitmaps/envelope.xbm) Mail icon ^i(bitmaps/battery.xbm) Battery icon" | ./dzen2 -p 

You can mix icons and text in any way you like and assign
foreground/background colors with ^fg(color) and ^bg(color).

Creating and manipulating icons can be easily done with the "bitmap"

Have fun, Rob.
