For systems not using true-color?

So which are you advocating?  truecolor or not?  Two directory trees?

256 colors?  What good is it for 8-bit system if icons use up the
entire color space?  What's why Debian icons are limiting to a

Sure.  A standard method is even recommended in
/usr/share/doc/menu/menu.txt.gz, a text that I referred to in the
first place.

$ mogrify -format xpm -geometry 32x32 -map cmap.xpm <filenames>

I fail to see the point of your post.  Sorry.
