have you looked at the monoquery code in svn? it registers stockicons
via the MonoQuery.addin.xml file. You can then use these icons based on
the id given from the pad. See the following two files for examples.


you will notice in the second file

			label = GettextCatalog.GetString ("Tables");
			string iconName = "md-mono-query-tables";
			icon = Context.GetIcon (iconName);
			TablesNode node = (TablesNode) dataObject;
			node.RefreshEvent += RefreshHandler;

the "md-mono-query-tables" references to the stock icon defined in
MonoQuery.addin.xml. Note that the icon *is* stored as a resource in
