The moodle off grey icons might make sense as they'll blend better with any

I think the icons make sense, but should they be toggle buttons?

I could see a case that the interface could be tweaked a little - the
properties panel isn't really properties anymore (it's more properties and
do lots of important stuff).

2.2 makes sense, but I think the icons make the interface easier to use -
would they confuse a new user - probably, but they might also demonstrate
some of the features the system has which people have missed (or is that
atypical techie talk)
