Re the original question which was what pic to put on a "default" button on
a toolbar: how about a simplified or scaled-down version of the program
icon? It would have to be similar enough to the program icon to carry the
meaning "program" as in "program defaults", but different enough to not
confuse the users into thinking that they were launching the program again.
This may not be possible in all cases, but it's just a thought.
