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

Sure. A standard method is even recommended in
/usr/share/doc/menu/menu.txt.gz, a text that I referred to in the
$ mogrify -format xpm -geometry 32x32 -map cmap.xpm <filenames>
I fail to see the point of your post. Sorry.
