Ah, right.  What I guess nobody took into account at that time is the 
question of a stable interface between the icon set provider (the 
extension) and its consumer (the core LO code).  I have no idea what 
that interface actually looks like (i.e., how does the core LO code 
access a specific icon within an icon set---by relative file pathname?), 
to judge whether or not stability of that interface is a major issue we 
should be worried about.
