[PD] Pd files on Linux: MIME type and (document) icons

From my side, there is no confusion: this was a separate repo for getting feedback on the updated icon. The finished icon renders were then added to the Pd source repo. I didn't see the need for putting everything in the main repo when the icon is likely not to change for a long time after.

The mime type handling etc should be part of the auto tools set up or some sort of Linux/frteedesktop script in the main repo, probably in the platform specific linux folder with appropriate documentation. If it's a makefile, it could be located there with the needed build rules which are only applied on the needed platform, ie. `make mimetype`, and would be installed with the other files as needed (if they go into a generic free desktop-y location).
