The AI format *is* a source, and pretty much any professional
vector-graph-capable program will deal with it. You definitly don't want
to go TIFF, because TIFF is not vector based.
AI is the source, ICO is the derived binary.
As for documentation on how to generate it, I'm not a graphics guy, but
this is what Gavin said:

If that's not enough, I'm sure he can add something more on how it was
done. (The AI file is available for download from
http://pgsql.gavinroy.com/art/, where I got the ICO)
