Displaying big icons in grid view

Icons are more recognizable than text. To quote myself, a grid layout with big icons »would certainly be interesting as an option since Shell, Unity and Mac OS all use mostly big icons.«

[tvst 2010-09-29]

I think it's a good idea to have this as an option. I'm a bit busy with my job right now though, so I will be prioritizing bug fixes before I ever get around to implementing this.

Of course, if any of the other Cardapio devs want to take up this blueprint, go ahead :)

Also, I guess I might as well write this somewhere since I don't think I ever did:
My original idea with Cardapio was to have the icon list look and behave like the one in Gnome Control Center. That is, with buttons layed out in multiple columns (similar to the grid view proposal from this blueprint), but with labels beside their icons (unlike grid view). So it would be great if we could also implement this sometime.
