I wouldn't say that the icons of the actions should be the icons of the
matches. This might be useful for matches with only one actions. But
with more actions I think it's difficult to distinguish what each action
does when all have the same icon. Actually, you wouldn't need the icons
anymore then, because they don't give any additional information.
Maybe it's possible to just set the icons in the history view to those
of the match instead of the action.
