That was next on my list.

I told it to convert a 31×31 pixel PNG that had a nice blended transparent background.  It 
produced an ICO with one image in it, that was still 31 pixels (didn't snap to 32) and 
seems to have a transparent layer.  It worked on IE8 under XP.  I didn't check under W2K 
yet, but I'm guessing it won't work.

ImageMagick might have a way to produce the several needed images and assemble them into a 
single ICO file, but I didn't see a flag that just does all that.  So a Perl script that 
calls ImageMagick several times to do all the steps?
