Commited. I don't like it... but is something for now... Here is the 
original svg attached (48x48px gear.png in front, faustlogo.svg in the 
middle and a transparent square frame behind)

I like the idea.

I'll try it.

BTW, I tried to dinamically add visual objects with the todo: 'search 
bar' on the processings tree... but the automatically generated layout 
is really ugly. In that cases, do you think is better to deal with that 
managing the layout by the code, or use an externally defined widget?

No problem. But I want to, it's really annoying the timer when you want 
to see what happened :)
