  R Core,
  *Great* to see this bubble up in the NEWS aggregation:
    2.15.1 patched NEW FEATURES
    The X11() window gains an icon: the latter may be especially useful on
    Ubuntu's Unity interface.
    The WM_CLASS should be set in circumstances where the Window Manager failed
    to make use of Xt settings.
  As you may know, I also applied these changes by Philip (CC'ed) to the Debian
  package and am enjoying them tremendously. This is useful beyond Unity -- I
  am currently (at work) at a Windows 7 box and even its taskbar now shows an R
  logo when I send an x11() plot device over ssh.
  You may need to also include two more files:  an icon png file, and a
  .desktop file.  I can help off-list, as can Philip who guided me through this
  Dirk, glad to see the "delta" between the Debian build and R minimized again
