This is great Gary, thanks so much! Most of the icons are already very good
and quite consistent. And there are a few we could definitely improve.
I see we already have both a wrench and a cog. But the more I think about
it, it seems that preferences could be a form with checkboxes, or even a
pencil making a checkmark. Seems that the message we want to communicate is
"having a choice", more than the "inner workings" implied by the cog/gear.
What do you think?
