This is a good idea, though I was even thinking that we should provide
an easier way of letting 3rd parties to modify that. I didn't have time
for that yet, but if you can come up with an idea, it is welcome.

AFAIK, the appearance has nothing to do with the icon size. A size of
30x30 is specified in the CSS but that affects the size of the button,
not the icon. The size of the icon was hardcoded (and I didn't touch
that) in the C++ code, see:


Something nasty that you can do is having a custom patch for your WK to
change that, though a better solution would be changing WK to make the
icon size depend on the CSS. Wild ideas that I can have now are:

     I. Playing with the padding and margin to see if you can find a way
        of leaving the same size of 16px but that is not hardcoded in
        the C++.
    II. Seeing if you can specify a custom property that has no effect
        when creating the boxes layout and that you can read from C++ to
        select the icon size.

Best regards.
