SVG icons are the only decent long term solution once screens go to
200dpi+ those tiny icons will be worthless, of course you can always
double or triple the size of fixed size icons automatically but they
won't look very good. Microsoft is pushing for high resolution screens
to be available in time for its new OS 'Longhorn' release, which is only
around 2 years from now.
