Yes, I will take a look at this.

There's one problem with this, not all of the icons are created by me, they
are royalty free icons which i've had laying around for quite a while, and I
really can't remember where I got them. This might be a problem, but it
should not be a huge deal for me to draw new ones if this is preffered? I
don't know if we can re-release under a licence, since they're free for all,

I will change this.

I might have to draw a new iconset myself, because I'm not sure we can

Inkscape and photoshop ain't comparable, ps is not for vectors. But I always
work with my mockup's in ps,
I'll draw these in illustrator, there's no problem exporting them as svg and
opening in inkscape, as far as i know.
