Not that I would think:


This works nearly exactly the same as GetIcon() namely that it
calls it's (or rather it's child's overriding)
GetMenuIconData() which provides raw icon (XPM) data according
to some configuration and hands it over to the caller converted
by cPickle, zlib and wxBitmapFromXPMData()...

into any of the files in CVS, tell me about it and I will
implement it.
