As Brad is saying, there are currently 120 implemented node types, so doing an
icon for each is not feasable in short-term. What could be done is having an
icon for some of the most common nodes (Add, Bub, Mul, AND, OR, Constant, Load,
Save, ...) and then we can have "category" icons like "DSP", "neural nets",
"Vector quantization", ... There are about 15 categories. Also, when building a
subnet, we should have the option to assign an icon to it.

I'd like the whole thing to look a bit like Simulink.
