I'll volunteer. I already did it as part of adding OpenTRAC support to YAAC.

Are you referring to http://opentrac.org/symbols.pdf? If so, someone in 
the "we" group just needs to take that PDF, find a or make it machine 
readable/editable (say maybe a google/shareable spreadsheet), and fill 
in the APRS symbol for each row that has a corresponding one.  Then the 
rows that don't have an APRS symbol code are the ones that should be 
considered for assignment in the new APRS set.

Any volunteers to be the "someone"?  (Please step forward and commit so 
that multiple people don't duplicate the effort).
