Hmm, how would I do that?  Basically, the VPN lock is always composited
into the lower-righthand corner of the large icon.  Everything else gets
centered.  The existing VPN progress icons are built (with the lock
positioned in the lower-right corner) so that they can just be smashed
on top of the current icon and it'll all be positioned correctly.

So match the size of the nm-vpn-connecting-* set to the same overall
size as the applet icon area, but just offset the vpn lock itself so
it's positioned in the lower-right corner.  The progress twirlie can
probably stay where it is.

Existing connection with VPN active:
