Icon images for Save function. 256, 128, 64, 32, 24, 16 pixels in one image

This is not a bug report but a suggestion(I found nowhere else I could submit this so here it is)
Icon for "Save" is a miniature image of a 3 1/2" floppy diskette should be something better. Few modern computer users have seen a 3 1/2" diskette, no comuters are furnished with then any more. The Icon is not selfexplanetory for those who have not lived threough the dark ages of 1.44 Mb floppies.
I attach a .png with my humble attempt to make an icon for the Save function in pixel widths 256, 128, 64, 32, 24, 16. (they are not square)

Hi Gregor,

Please take a look at the answers to this question:
http://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/2077/why-is-there-a-weird-save-icon/

tl;dr -- We tried a new icon and (nearly) everyone was confused, so we switched back to the icon of the 3.5" floppy :-)

Please consider posting at libreoffice-ux-advise@lists.freedesktop.org mailing list as it is the best place for such discussion.

As this was discussed and changed just recently, I will mark this bug as WONTFIX.
Do not hesitate to reopen in case of mistriage.
