Ugh, reading this again I make it sound all snobbish or something.
What I meant was that a consistent system is a beautiful system in the 
way that people can actually forget about the icon looks all together 
and focus on their function.
Therefore, if you think Echo is the way forward, it might be better to 
wait a little while longer until things are in a more release-ready state.
