I did a quick a pass making new icons for the VS templates.

I'm not totally in love with this... but they are consistent and somewhat more accurate compared to what we had before.

I have a Paint.NET source file... I am not a real artist. ;) It really isn't anything good as all the source art is pixel based which is why I didn't bother committing it.

We really need a real artist to make a pass eventually.

I just couldn't stand looking a picture of a software box and the Vista logo anymore... which made MonoGame look ancient and out of date.

We probably need to replace the template icons with real multi-resolution .ico files as well.

There is an .svg version of the logo in git, I'll have a bash at converting
that to a multi-res icon file.

i have the tools to do all of this. if we need an artist to give it a go, then I'll get one of ours to do that.

I think we should get this merged... because it is better than what we have.

We should engage a real artist on the next pass... we need a good design, with high quality, in the right formats.
