OK.  I'll leave the icon in the templates for now, and return to it when I
tidy the templates up (I suspect that there might be some other unused bits
left over after all the changes are done).

Right.  Again, since it's not actually breaking anything, it's probably an
issue to return to once the more pressing stuff has been done.
