*	dob = IconFromWBArg (wbarg);
*	struct DiskObject *dob;

*	Given a valid Workbench argument, this command will return the
*	proper icon.  This call uses the new (V36) GetDiskObjectNew call
*	to ensure that an icon will be returned.
*	This functions requires dos.library and icon.library to be opened
*	by the application.
*	wbarg	- Pointer to a filled in WBArg structure.
*	dob	- Pointer to a DiskObject structure.  Application must call
*		  FreeDiskObject when done with the icon.
