A few months ago, I started dispatching your icon set into individual
svg files to get it like the default qgis set and to ease the work on it
as separate packages means the possibility to follow the evolution of
one icon in a svn repo.
Unfortunatly I've not been able to achieve this port due to lack of time
and some difficulty to browse the source file. I can upload what I've
done somewhere if interested.
I planned to do some work on your icon set to bring more contrast (it is
difficult for some to distinguish between active and unactive).
About the map icon sets, having them is one thing but for now it would
be too painful to browse in the composer item tab without a filtering
tool (the folder search doesn't fill this gap).
