 I'd give that idea a bit of thought, before following it. The concept
is sound in itself, but the implementation lacks in several
places. The biggest flaw is the non-existant handling of different
palettes and/or color depths of the icons. Furthermore, the
manipulation of such images would require a specialized tool.

 It would probably be better to provide a tool to convert from .info
to xpm or somesuch, and base further work on that.
