Hi Eric,

Thanks for the pointer to the Haiku icons. I managed to load your project in Squeak. They look good. What is your intended use case for ObjectIcon and CollectionIcon?

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.
