Hi Tim,

Thanks, I really want to make it for users, not only for me :)
So some compromise in design is needed, at least at first approach.

Newest versions will be available at:
Just now ...

There is problem with digitizing icons and some others. They are not 
replaced. Edit icon is replaced in table edition but not in toolbar, end 
so on...
But I will try to prepare all of them, even for off-QGIS view ad 
discussion at the moment.

Yes, I use Inkscape. All were designed for small sizes, but I would be 
careful with scaling.

All primitives (objects and acions) are in one svg file [120kB] :)
So work is going really fast and in one or two weeks I can complete all 
icons for toolbars, including some plugins. There are also other ones 
but it shouldn't take much time.
