[Sugar-devel] [DESIGN] Error/Warning Icons for alerts

I came across the issue when working on "Error messages when writing to 
device (Journal) [1]": Our alerts (e.g. "Connecting to the school 
server", the error message when you can not copy an item to a removable 
device...) do not have an icon at the left, even though the alert does 
allow for that.

For the moment we use the emblem-warning (attached) for example in the 
Control Panel for the inline alerts (you have to restart Sugar in order 
to have the changes take effect).

Having an icon with the alert does help learners that can not read yet, 
or simply when the alert is not translated in the specific language yet. 
I guess for the start an icon for warning and one for error would be a 
good start.

What do others think?

Thanks in advance for your feedback,
