While you're prioritizing, be sure to *surface* all of the issues surrounding
the iconification that you've been tasked with! You may have to *deiconify*
and, later, *reiconify*! (Honest, a colleague of mine saw *deiconify* in
documentation. Can *reiconify* be far behind?)
Didn't these awful things get named "nerbs" somewhere? As I recall, a nerb is
a noun used as a verb; conversely, a "voun" is a noun used as a verb. Of
course, I could be wrong, in which case I'll have to rememorify...
Sorry, it's Monday.
