Honestly, pretty much everyone agrees that current icon selector is
rather horror UI, and would like to replace it. It's cumbersome,
confusing, and totally disobeys themes. If one wants to provide out-of-
theme icon, simply dragging it would be the best idea (or choose it from
FileChooser provided in UI, for your a11y & discoverability needs). But
primary UI should be only concerned with themed icons, since that's what
you want in vast majority of cases
