I agree it's not critical.

Why would you want to change overlay icon set? Icons help find a command faster
and help memorize them.

That's how I see it. People have a different background and some icons speak to
them while others don't. Thus I'd like to use those, which speak to me. Why do I
have to stick with the only available option? Personally, I don't like some of
the icons, and would like them replaced; others I'd like removed (does every
command need an icon?).

But does it mean You would like to switch your icons too? I don't think so.
Being able to make my own set, I might use them without bothering others. That's
exactly the same as with command labels/text – I'm working on my own translation
to better suite my workflow. But it won't necessarily work for others. With
ResText it's easy and I don't have to force others to use it.

So here are my reasons:

– It would help to maximize user experience with ability to tweak the interface
to what one likes. For example, I'd like to change some of them and remove
others (I mean no icon for a command).

– It would allow making and using new icons without replacing those, which
exist, and which users may get used to; and would not force others to use the
new set, as it does now.

– It would allow people to contribute to the project more easily if their custom
icon sets would not require compilation.
