Description

I don't have a CSS mapped yet, but I did collapse the icons into a single sprite (all, except loading spinner). There is also a variety of online tools out there to map the sprite icons, so it's fairly easy to do.
But, need feedback first. Also if current layout of the sprite is ok.

@Max there is also an ongoing attempt to switch the icon set to Font Awesome (#23980). As there are more icons available for plugin developers I think it's a good thing to back it, too. ;-)

Well, in this case, it's better to go with font icons, because fonts are vector information, which means it's scalable and also cheaper in size, there is also more of them.

I offer to close this issue so we focus on it's only related issue #23980 which seems like the best solution anyway :)

Closing.

As pointed out in #7792#note-6, CSS sprites are difficult to maintain.
