I am definitely not going to use the same icon for different actions, sorry.
That goes against everything I've been taught in UX and, for destructive
actions, is in my opinion quite catastrophic. If two buttons do different
things, they should not have the same icon.
What should be fixed is that action-delete is something else in plasma (see
screenshot) than in non-plasma (where it is a trash can, which would work). If
that is fixed, the icon also looks better, and fixed across every piece of qml
that uses it. But that's a different bug.
A different icon that has been proposed is "clear-all", however, due to the
nature of that icon (a left pointing arrow) it also looks wrong. Once that is
fixed, I'd be willing to change to clear-all, but then as well it should be
fixed across plasma, and not only in this plasmoid here.
tl;dr: until some icons are fixed and more global discussions have been
held, I am not going to alter this change further.
