Are you ready for me to convert my Rev G symbol set to a new format?   
I've noticed that while Rev G symbols display correctly on the main maps 
of Findu, the old out-of-date ones continue to show in the nearby 
stations lists and other places.  

Am I correct in assuming the station list requires them in individual 
files?    Could one pass at this (cutting up the Rev G bitmaps) make 
them usable both for Google and the current findu station lists?
