First of all thanks for the great work you are doing with this software.
I think that it is impossible to have a standard way for the icons in the
sidebar, except that for the "pictures" icon, and maybe "last import" icons
that seem pretty good as they are now (IMHO obviously).
For *any *other sidebar icon (events, tags and so on) I think it is not
possible to find a good standard way.
My suggestion is to use the first picture in the set as sidebar icon, giving
the user the possibility to change it right-clicking on the item.
Hope it is useful
