I'd be willing to kick in a bit for that, if it could include some 
low-resolution icons, including monochrome - I'm already having to draw 
my own icons and I'm not very good at it.

I do know a couple of good graphic artists (including the one who made 
this spiffy APRS poster: 
http://www.argentdata.com/files/aprs_poster.pdf) but none that 
specialize in pixel art, which is probably what you want for icons this 
size.
