the tasklist gets the icon from an X property that applications set on
their windows.

in gnome, either the application can specify an icon to use, or if it is
run from a launcher it gets the icon from the launcher through a nice
little hack.

so, you can have gnome-terminal use different icons by creating
launchers in your panel which have a different icon.

otherwise, there isn't a way to change them.

In the afterlife, a cute .signature will only get you so far.
