I did a little more tweaking on the icons to add more contrast and
improve the radius on the blue screen...
At this point I need a little direction on the use of the
render-icon-theme.py script. I used an existing icon source file as a
reference to create my system-config-boot.svg file but when I run the
script some of the icons are off center.

>> I would curve the corners of the blue screen slightly. Really just a half-pixel so it's not that sharp compared to the outer border-radius. You can also shade the stroke with a gradient as well so it doesn't feel so flat -- darker on top, lighter at the bottom. I would chop that one pixel row on the 16x16 so that the switch is surrounded by the same padding on both sides. Lower the opacity of the white text lines down a notch. Tweak the switch on the 32 and 48 to be less tall so it's more consistent in shape between the sizes. The smaller the size, the more contrast you usually need to put in. As you can see on the glass reflection -- it's nicely visible on the 48, but a lot harder to make out on the 32.
