My apologies: the current implementation is not documented (except in
the patch).

You need to use gconf settings to enable it.

in desktop/sugar/desktop, you need to add view_icons entries (and
optionally, favorite_icons), e.g.:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<entry name="view_icons" mtime="1375102663" type="list" ltype="string">
<li type="string">
<li type="string">
<entry name="favorite_icons" mtime="1375102663" type="list" ltype="strin
<li type="string">
<li type="string">

This will result in two homeviews, each using the standard view-radial
icon on the desktop and the emblem-favorite icon in the list view.

from the cmd line, you can configure it something like this:

gconftool-2 -s /desktop/sugar/desktop/view_icons --type list
--list-type string ['view-radial','view-radial']
gconftool-2 -s /desktop/sugar/desktop/view_favorites --type list
--list-type string [emblem-favorite','emblem-favorite']
