I think they all at least support using SVG as icons.  All relevant
(Gtk & Qt) GUI toolkits should AFAIK support SVG and I think technically
one can give any supported image format in the program .desktop file.
Distro preferences is another matter.

Attached are couple of SVG files converted from Hatari PNG logo
with light editing.

Then couple of SVG versions of just the "H" letter in Hatari logo,
and same in few different sizes in PNG format.

Do any of the SVG images look usable?

Maybe h-outlined.svg.gz?  Somebody more experienced in e.g. Inkscape
could remove few extra things from that and change the auto-converted
colors closer to what's in the logo & other images.
