Nice GViM toolbar icons for Windows

I've found nice GViM toolbar icons recently here, but didn't like the idea of patching .exe file.
So I've decided to make it in "ViM way".

It's not a secret that icons in ViM can be easily customized. Reading :help toolbar-icon gives clear path to using your own customized icons. So, I took the file from char101 blog post and converted it into a set of 16-bit BMP files using Paint.NET. Here's the result:

You can get those bitmaps here just unzip the archive to your system/user vimfiles folder.

Thanks to Mark James for great Silk icons
and to Char101 from http://charupload.wordpress.com/ for pointing me to those icons. 

UPDATE 30/05/2012: Icons are uploaded to GitHub. https://github.com/istepura/vim-toolbar-icons-silk
