It can. This is observable at the edges of the circle already provided, which is an alpha-channel PNG.

Not a problem. I can provide matrices of sizes and color depths, and I will handle the manual touch-ups.

So, 256x, 48x, 32x, 16x in 32-bit and 4-bit. I'm doing these in matrix; if it would be convenient to have other sizes/depths, let me know, and I can stuff them in at essentially no extra work cost.

If you need the icons to occupy a small portion of a large region, or versions done that way, just give me the appropriate metrics, and I'll add that to my script.

I'll try to have the full set of icons done by Monday of next week. No promises on the timeframe, but I'm usually pretty good about that stuff.

Also, look, I'm really not an artist. If you have critique or suggestions regarding the final product, I'm listening. I prefer to wait until I have what I consider something done-ish before taking criticism, in order to resist the too-many-cooks effect, but once they're ready, if there are problems or undesirable characteristics - maybe the icon looks like a butt at the wrong resolution, or something - I'm open to change requests.

So glad I might be able to contribute in a small way :D
