So while the general idea is to combine Human and Oxygen what other
things should we add? The finer details.

Just my thoughts:


    * Outline around icons smaller than X? Are outlines even needed?
    * Palette? Where's the Human one?


    * All source icons will be in .SVG form created at the size they are
      meant to be used.
    * Sizes = 16px, 22px, 24px, 32px, 48px and scalable.
    * 16-48px will be rendered in the built package with .svg used for
      anything larger.

I'm sure there's lots more to consider. Just getting the ball rolling.

Ill post these again for some good thoughts.
