"Hi, I followed a guide that I found on the internet. That guide says it's not for my version of the program, but I tried it anyway. It did not work. This must be a bug in the program" :-P

Just for reference: This bug is not about "this method doesn't work anymore" but rather "there is no way in git/master to remove icons, since the necessary callbacks where removed".
