Default Library icons

Since i searched to find someone who either had an interest in this problem or had a fix and did not find, i shall start a thread on this.

Why cant they be changed? or am i missing something?

If you end up creating alot of libraries yourself, you are stuck with the same ole icon for every one of them, makes identification that much slower.
