I have a ticket assigned to me for this (#4832).  It's presently
targeted at a "future release", but it's not that hard to add icons to
the theme.  I might have a chance to work it into the next release.

One of the reasons they aren't there yet is because we've been hoping
to add an API for implementing handheld mode which might include, in
some form, a standard help screen with all the appropriate buttons.
Of course, even then the icons should be in the theme for any activity
to make use of, and there's no excuse not to put them there in the
