[kepler-dev] Icons in the *DataSource actors

Both Eml200DataSource and DarwinCoreDataSource actors have hard coded 
icons.  They are not exactly using the same code but it looks like one 
was cribbed from the other.  They set the folder shape, then make calls 
to control color/text changes to indicate state.

Since the icon system is/has gone through a major overhaul, I would like 
to discuss how we can get compatible icons for these actors.  I think it 
is still good for them to be able to control some indication of state 
since they do perform background tasks even when the workflow is not 

BTW - by "compatible" I mean in the visual sense.  These icons are very 
boxy and the colors are much too vibrant -- they would look horrible 
with the new icons.
