Which is the best source of free map icons (royalty free & price free)?

I need an icon set for my Google Maps project that will give it a custom feel. Ideally I want an icon set with a creative commons license so I can modify them myself.

Here's a post on the MangoMap blog with an overview of the top 3 free map icons sets.

I particularly like the Map Icon Designer, shown below.

The Maki POI icon set (from the crew at MapBox) is pretty great, in my opinion. Creative Commons license, and hosted on GitHub so that anybody can contribute new icons to it.
