Looks nice, is there some catch?

    while thinking about it, i found some colour related pro/con:

    con: colour usage is limited to fg / bg colour - one can't have multi-coloured icon with this method.

    pro: having just bg and fg colour makes it much easier for theme (css) designers to adapt the icons to their theme colours without having to draw new icons.

    Instead of a unicode font we can also think on svg fonts. svg should have multicolor capability but we need to check this / create a font or find one useable for us.

    SVG fonts is now a deprecated feature per above link, browser support has dropped to 28%. Only Safari supports svg fonts (how does that make 28%?)

    Font awesome has been installed for some time and is in widespread, but not exclusive, use in moin2.
