[Bf-committers] General purpose icons for Blender Addons?

I agree custom icons would be more versatile and fill a need, but I also think a good set of default icons can ease the lives of a lot of devs. It's just cumbersome to have to worry about icons, especially if you want to match the existing ones' style somewhat.
Icons like weld/ connect, up- and download, reset, warning and driven (great catch on that one btw!) are incredibly generic. Weld/ connect could be useful for anything from springs and joints to Armature tools; upload could likely be repurposed for things like "export".
I would personally give "custom icons" higher priority, but I definitely agree more default icons would be nice. +1 from me.
