These images look better on a white background, unfortunately on a
colored background (e.g. win32 desktop) the smoothing algorithm causes
an ugly white edge. This problem was the reason why I made them
full-color. With smoothing, a gradual transparency would be needed, I
believe icons can't do that. Any idea?
