Sure, that is the idea. Currently we displayed any other icon selected
after a successful SMB connect once aapl was enabled but we displayed
only the "default" icon when avahi was used to register our service on
the network. This was inconsistent and thus we use the same settings now
in both places. "MacSamba" was chose to guarantee to display the default
icon and not show up with any surprises. As you mentioned, any other
icon can be chosen with the parametric option, even "fruit:model=iPod"
works (and really looks funny). For the registration I think it's just
fine to always announce our presence with the default icon. Thus I'd say
we can leave the patch as is (it's already in master now). If you have
no further objections, we should push to the released samba versions as
