HC icons are stored as resources in the legacy Mac OS resource fork.

Good news:  You can use LiveCode's built-in getResources function to 
obtain a list of resources in a file, and use the getResource function 
to obtain the actual image data for the icon.

Bad news:  I have no idea how to translate that bitmap data into a form 
that will work well in a LiveCode image object.

Anyone here know how do to that?
