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.
