Sorry, but i absolutely don't want these icons in the app, for some reasons:
- the licensing issues you already mentioned
- but more importantly, these icons are very big. You don't see where the
geocache is actually located. Therefore i choose the square (so you can
easily spot the geocache) with the little crosshair in the center (so you
can see where _exactly_ the geocache is located).
- drawing the icons would be slower than drawing simple squares and lines
- it's easier to make the squares and lines translucent, so that the user
can see underlying streets
