Are you joking?
There are near 500 icons.

Only png files can be displayed as images when exploring a folder, not svg 

Moreover I wrote:
"Build tree is subject to be deleted, not files in source tree."
Clearly, you not read me.

Forget it.

The current tree was designed by guys who know what they are doing, not 
It can be modified, but with good reasons.

svg files are sources, like html or .fbp files
Why some guys are thinking only cpp files are sources. This is false.
Sources files can be written in any language (svg *is* a language)

Clearly you have never maintained icon files.
Maintain is not just build file: it is most of time create, choose and edit 

Still, I am in the impression you did not really read my previous mail.
