Lots of people have posted things about adding more colors or size to the icons.  Good, but incomplete.
Icons - including database, workspace page, toolbar, and bookmarks -- should allow you to specify a standard windows (supported by linux and mac also after a fashion) icon (.ico) files.   These files can be stored as a file resource within the database easily enough. 
This way of storing icon data handles mutliple sizes which the ui can then select from for best use in a particular place. 
Supported colors and resolutions span from very rough to almost photographic clarity, and many tools exist for creating and editing them.

Why not just leapfrog and go to .PNGs?
2) Andrew Pollack2817 (24 Nov 2007)
The ICO format allows for several sizes stored in a single file, allows transparency, and allows varying levels of color depth.
3) Gavin Bollard1648 (24 Nov 2007)
Being able to use the ICO format would give access to literally millions (billions?) of pre-existing icons as well as external editors. Great idea.

Then, Notes should be converting the .ico files to PNG format. To the user, the change is practically invisible.
