Just don't forget to reduce the colors some more, ideally not more

this small.  And use the same palette as for the other icons also,
so the sum of colors Emacs uses doesn't increase (it is on the limit
for 8 bit displays already).

Did you do the conversion manually, or did you use some special tool
for it?  Actually, this is a stupid question since you probably did
not use pencil and paper.  So what tool did you use, and how?

Gimp, I don't remember the details, but convert to indexed, and reduce colors and choose palette when doing that. Then save as xpm, setting alpha to 255. I don't think it was any more steps.
