We could probably make good use of icons in several places in Emacs.

It would be nice to have a set of general purpose icons available in ELPA, or ever in the core. For this and other purposes.

For now I'm using vscode's ones (under CC BY 4.0), but I'm guessing it won't be good for Emacs's image to migrate to that wholesale.

They look really good in that video, FWIW, and they immediately convey
meaning in a way that you simply can't reproduce with mere coloring.

BTW, what do you use to get those icons?  Are they available OOTB in

Yes, in the development version. Though disabled by default, for now.

company-format-margin-function is the relevant variable.

You also need a fairly recent Emacs built from master, for elisp-completion-at-point integration. With SVG support enabled, too.
