I see that you actually rotate your icons... Its a nice idea, and when 
it comes to an airplane icon, which is an arrow anyway, that looks logical.
But when it is a car, you only only have to rotate it, but also flip it 
when it goes in the oposite direction of the original drawing.
And how do you deal with icons which realy should never rotate (house), 
but the direction data may not be exactly zero (and this may happen). Do 
you have additional data attached to an icon saying, 'never rotate'?

In my Windows program, I would have to completely rewrite the way Icons 
are stored and drawn, to make anything like that possible..

PS, changing the format of the icons is extremely simple:
This incredible Image viewer and manipulation program, 
http://www.irfanview.com/ can batch-convert anything in a few seconds 
(and its free).
I use it all the time.
