I tried rendering the SVG at 50x50 and nothing comes through.  I think
we need something much simpler.  I'll look around.

I also noticed now that the exiting art work is 50x500 pixels.  They
have two versions of each icon, one for the mouse over where they
darken the image a bit.  Clever, but more work for producing new
icons.
