"somehow" is the problem; it can be done, and is extremely tedious as 
has to be done image
by image; as far as I know (and that probably isn't all that far).

Dunnit, and got slagged off by people who should have known better 
because I was
copying "protected material" (i.e. the HC icons, as if anyone really 
gives a sh*t about them any more;
don't you just love those people who rush to protect the interests of 
people who wouldn't raise a finger to help them?). However I never found 
an automated way to do this;
tedious in the extreme.
