Some clever revDude could hack out a conversion -- .ico's are only 
16x16  (uncompressed?)

1. screenscrape the html of the page for the first .ico file
2. get the file as binary....
3. figure out where the headers, jump tables are, the standards for 
ico are out there I'm sure
4. convert to imagedata
....

so few pixels that it could be done easily in rev...
