TINYTIDY is a ''hack'' which I threw together and didn''t put in the ''library'' but rather LispUsers.'

Description: Occasionally when you have several icons lined up by TINYTIDY and you create a new icon the next call to TINYTIDY will line the icons up, but they will often overlap.  Repeating the call to TINYTIDY once or twice clears up the problem.  BTW. I like this way of keeping my screen clean.  However, for those of us with desires for symmetry the TINYTIDY alignment emphasizes the incongruity of the different icons. TINYTIDY should encourage us to settle on a standard icon size and shape.'
