I was just thinking... If you want to change the "look" of the
org-headlines. Does one really need to change the code?

I have been using Nicolas Girard's org-icons package for quite a while. And
that makes org-buffers look pretty nice. You can even customise the icons, to
make it look the way you want.

However, some things about the org-icons package... It seems to be a little
outdated.  Are there many org-moders out there still using it?  Were there
ever any plans to include it in the org-distribution? Right now it needs to be
installed by hand, because the patch to org.el is outdated...  Also, I need to
load it two times in my .emacs before the icons work...


The org-icons can be found here:
Download from Nicolas Girard's github
On the Worg site I could only find screenshots, no other information...
The list-message announcement for org-icons
And some list-messages discussing including the org-icons-patch into org-mode
