Yup.  Have a look at the attached quick mock-up of how things could look
if we would use Material icons for the tool-bar as an example.

I like it!

My Emacs already shows nice icons in the toolbar, though, thanks to GTK3 theme integration. And weren't we talking about removing the toolbar?

You have my support for replacing the default set, of course.

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.

True.  all-the-icons.el has some links to other freely licensed sets.
Could one of them be a suitable replacement?

To be clear, I'm using SVG icons there in the video. And I think the discussions around emacs-devel showed certain rejection of the ideal of using of fonts for icons.

Would be nice otherwise, though. If perhaps a tad limiting.
