Would be awesome if it was possible to import/export/convert icons in macbinary format (named ._yaddayaddasomething) into something more "windowy"... like .ico.... or perhaps even something else, like png

We'll have to investigate the format and how much work it'd take to allow for something like that.  It wouldn't make it into the update we're releasing this week, but possibly sometime this year.

We looked at it and it didn't look good.

What do you mean, didn't look good?  As in atrocious or not really possible due to format, etc?

Oh well, Who needs OS-X icons anyhow... Windows icons are best and we got the best bunch of icon people here, and their works fit right in without stuffing around with conversions.

There were a couple of OS-X icons I sorta liked the look of, but I ain't gonna lose any sleep if I can't have 'em in Windows.

Well, IcoFX (freeware) does it, but it lacks batch processing for it, which is why I asked for the feature to begin with.
