It's too late for that. Mechanicals are frozen.  You can't have color
either. Sorry.

It's really too late for tooling changes like that, but a label on the
button works at this late stage.

I am strongly in favor of this option.  It does a great job of
indicating one as primary and the other as secondary even without a
graphic, and furthermore makes the primary one easier to hit on an
already small physical system.

It also internationalizes fine because saying the "larger button" will
always have a reasonable translation.
