Mimetypes icons should be plugin-based (for new input/output plugins, e.g.)

Hi there,

I have started to develop DOCX input plugin and done quite a lot (already enough for my own needs, tables and colors left). But DOCX icon is the "unknown" one, with a question mark. After digging around I've found out that all mimetypes are registered in FileIconProvider and I couldn't find any possibility to extend it with my own icon in the plugin init (e.g. via get_resources).

I suppose it would be a nice feature to have an extension mechanizm and to have certain plugin type or just another "hackaround" how to add an icon to specific format without putting it into images/mimetyps directory.

So is my statement correct or do I simply don't know how to do that via plugin?

Add an icon for azw3?

Kovid,

For my Kindle Keyboard, at least, the azw3 or KF8 format also appears as unknown. Can you add the mobi icon for it? Or, if there is another dedicated icon in existence, use that? I know, pretty nitpicky.

@pmorris: AZW3 files will have a dedicated icon in Calibre's next release (along with Topaz & Kindlet files).
