Sorry, I don't know how that would help inside Emacs or Gnus.  You'd
have to compose the image yourself, right?  Plus you'd lose the visual
consistency that Silk provides by having individually designed icons.

I have almost convinced myself to make iconset-silk.el an ELPA package
now :) I may also provide a general iconset.el library that would make
it easier to interact with iconset-silk.el symbolically.  Would that be
OK?  Is there already a library to do this?
