Troy,

I understand completely. But I would add, I believe nice icons can be built
using only 16 colors. You just have to be careful. Monochrome color schemes
with healthy dithering can help. Or a more flat 'graphic' approach works
well. I put some example icons up at:

to check out. While they're not the best, they were created fairly quickly
and work pretty well....especially when rendered in the 16 x 16 mode.
