you plan to make some better looking ones?  They seem to be out of
I also noticed that the icons are not as well shaped as I want them to be.

They are just quickly hacked together from the yes / no stock icons, maybe I will sit down with Inkscape and draw something better. Problem is here, that the very small 10x10 pixels icons are pretty hard to draw that they still look good and not blurred. So it's not certain that some inkscape icons will look any better.
Let's see what I can do ...
I've checked in some improvements, but it still not looks perfect.

One problem I was facing is the conversion from Inkscape svg over png to xpm (with the lack of an alpha channel for xpm?).
As we no longer support GTK1 (which was the main reason to use xpm), it 
might be a good idea to switch from xpm to png files (at least for new 
pictures) to avoid such problems.
