We like symbolic icons

It lets you parameterise icons on the fly

How can we feed into the upstream project?

Upstream have implemented it already:
* we would like more flexibility for size (not hardcoded 16px icons)
* the current implementation does not make use of symbolic strokes, it is too simplified for our use
* they will do warning: ok, error, warning state
