Yeah, we can probably come up with something like that. One thing I like 
better in the current approach though is that when you delete a set and then 
create a new one you'll have a different icon, not the same again.

We could have the icon in the popup dialog clickable to cycle through letters 
or something.

Question is, though, do people even want this? If there's a consensus letters 
are better than the current icons I'm not opposed to writing it, but if half 
the people are against it and half are for it I'm not going to change the 
current thing ;)
