Re: [e4-dev] Variables Icon Paths

Hy Tom,

I had a shot on this with a different solution:

See EclipseMagazin 2.2013 - i created a bundle adding a new URL Handler, namely icon://
were I could use static allocations like icon://PERSON which worked out quite well! It is
extended with a fragment, which allows for easy exchange of the complete icon set for the
whole application.

I think this approach could be extended to create an AddOn managing all icons, allowing
to address them icon:// style!
