Absolutely. It will definitely improve the overall look of roundcube, and will give plugin developers a wide range of icons to choose from.

In larry the use of icons for tabs/sections is pretty much a must, and it is really a pain that developers need to create their own icons in roundcube's style. With fontawesome they'd have a huge set of icons to choose from. And if we support the configuration of icons through classnames in the plugin api, that would simplify the icon process immensely. 

Right now, plugin developers would need to either create their own icon and add it through css, or use an existing icon and add it through css. Either way, you'd have to load in your own css file for each plugin.

Would roundcube be open to switch to fontawesome?
