Unfortunately, they have excessive use of gradients, so an automatic 
trace is not very good (but not very bat either), see a sample: 

Anyway, recreating this set of images in Inkscape by manually tracing 
over the jpeg should be trivial and would take about one afternoon for 
one person (too bad I am not in a good shape for work, otherwise one day 
in the next weekend would be more than enough).
