Default custom icons question

putting this in this forum because of the path to the icons on osx.

i've been making a custom toolbar and want to put up two buttons for
cycling through item fade shapes, one button for fade ins, one for fade
outs. i've found icons to use for the fade ins but not for the fade outs.
can i just open the fade in icon in an image editor, rename it doing a
'save as' and flip it, keeping it in the same path as the original? on
my snow leopard system the path is:

osx_drive/users/babag/library/application_support/reaper/data/toolbar_icons

thanks,
BabaG

apparently, the answer is yes. you can just copy the file and flip it,
keeping it in the same location and giving it a new name.

one interesting thing happened when i experimented with this. i have
both reaper 32 and 64 installed. for reaper 64 the icon files are
located inside the app package and to get at them you have to control-
click--->'show package contents' to get at the toolbar icons folder. i
changed the icon in the 32 bit version first since i usually use the 64
and figured it would be safer in case i screwed something up. the change
worked on the 32 bit version so i made the same change in the 64 bit folder
inside the app. when i opened the 64 bit reaper, though, the icon on my
toolbar had already been changed to the flipped one. i never had to edit
the toolbar and select the newly flipped icon set for get it to show up,
which i find curious. as if the 32 and 64 bit versions are sharing info.
that's not something i expected.
