Hi Bernhard,

Sorry to slightly derail the conversation here. I have been experimenting
with using icons in Squeak. Specifically, I've been using the PNG exports
from this repository <https://github.com/darealshinji/haiku-icons> which is
itself an export of icons from Haiku OS (aka the open source remnant of
BeOS). The reason I bring this up is because Haiku actually uses a custom
file format called HVIF
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haiku_Vector_Icon_Format>, which is a binary
format that encodes basic vector drawing operations. The Haiku icons are
nice and also available exported as SVG in the repository I linked above.
Here <https://github.com/darth-cheney/object-icon> is where I use them in
my own projects.
