The final image format needs to be a bitmap such as PNG with spaces to
hold icons as big as 128px square. This could be done in TikZ by using
the Preview package and then applying ImageMagick's convert tool. If
anyone puts in the time to draw up a background, I'm willing to take a
look at it.

If there is more than one submission, we could hold a vote to decide
which to use.
