I use a SIMBL extension to bring OS X 10.6's colorful Finder sidebar icons to 10.7. I have always been meaning to improve its source code because it simply scales the large versions down.

The difference is irritating and clearly noticeable for e.g. the "Documents" icon if you compare it to the "Go" menu. And it's not because the big versions are bitmaps, it was mostly the missing outline and lack of contrast.

(I still find them much faster than the monochrome versions (and with a smile) :))

The Finder's "Go" menu is really a good example of tiny, clear icons.
