Just having a stroke with one colour is not always enough, if you ask me.
So called monochrome icons might also need to add a darker/lighter
inset/outset at times to help define things. Ted, any ideas on how to define
those parts within the SVG? Perhaps adjusting the variable in a matrix or
such...If we are going to change things, let's change them with enough
flexibility to really allow for different interpretations from the start.
