First draft is on my web page
I have only TclTk interface at the moment to check how it works.

I use Corel (Draw->PhotoPaint) to make icons, but conversion to raster is
not just the matter of icon size.

In the meantime two things should be decided:
1. gis iconic language
For this point draft primitives of gis objects (layer, raster, vector map,
mapset, etc.) should be prepared for public discussion. Give me few days to
prepare it. If you have already your favorites, please let me/us know.

2. grass icon groups to avoid unnecessary elements in icons [see #3 in]
