That's the idea, yes.  Basically, application code will say
e.g. (icons-insert "fold-expanded"), and what actually happens depends
on the GUI/terminal capabilities (svg, xbm, utf-8 glyph, ascii) and user
customizations; for example, maybe the default is to use icons from the
icon set "foo", but a user prefers to use the icon set "bar" instead.
Users will even be able turn off all icons completely, if they prefer.
