I used the scale2x algorithm described here:
to scale old BeOS icons from 32x32 to 64x64 pixels at a higher quality than the default bilinear scaling that is currently being employed. This only works for 64x64 icons right now. The scale2x scaling makes the icons look less fuzzy. If bitmap down-scaling were implemented than other sizes could also benefit from this new algorithm. Screenshot and patch attached. The code I used is derived from the public domain SDL version of the algorithm by since the C version is licensed GPL which is incompatible with the MIT license.
