[RCD] icons

Hey all, as a plugin developer I often run into the problem of what icon to use for tabs and sections. I usually end up using one of the existing icons, but it doesnt really look nice when you have 5 tabs using the same icon. 

I think roundcube really limited itself by using custom icons. It's kind of reinventing the wheel.

Would it be an idea to add fontawesome as an icon set to roundcube?  This would add over 500 icons to the set to choose from and is framework agnostic. We would need a way for plugin authors to add a classname to their tabs/section, but that shouldnt be too hard. I think it wouldnt even be so bad if roundcube itself used fontawesome icons.

Regards,

Cor
