At the risk of having a ton of bricks dropped on my ass, perhaps we
could have a plug-in to create new icons? Blow an icon up to fill the
screen (so that we can have lines seperating the boxes that become the
pixels for the icon) and then use the direction buttons to move around
the image, the play button to toggle black/white. The image produced
could be written to the extensions config file in the 6-byte format
suggested.
