[SailfishDevel] Best way to access SailfishOS provided icons?

It would be nice to have a reference of the icons available, with the
names, the sizes, and their intended (or acceptable) use.
Should we add a "together" item for it?

The icons are installed on the emulator and SDK, so it is easy enough
to have a peek at them...

But having them in some style guide would be helpful as well.

Icons are installed under
"/usr/share/themes/jolla-ambient/meegotouch/icons". There are
interesting bits that seem to hint there are a few applications in the
work... If they have not been canned. (FM radio, internet radio,
weather notification...)
