In our case we do want to process and store all valid icons for a  
widget package, as we can display instances of the widget for multiple  
users, each with different preferred locales. In which case we need to  
have an appropriate list of widgets that we can select from.

However its not quite so clear why we need them stored in a particular  
order, as we'd query them for the best match to the user's preferences.
