Like that:

I've added quickly vector icons support to the test network preflet.
It now try to find an icon per interface name (custom driver-provided
icon?), then by interface media type (as shown here for IFM_ETHER) or,
ultimately, will seek a generic one.

While these two icons are well designed, I'm not sure people will get
it: they show too much "real" details, which can be confusing.
The orientation of the ethernet rj45 plug is not coherent with USB
cable and key one, for example, showing the connecting part frontally,
respecting the enforced perspective in the process.
Here it look more like an RJ45 cable seen from the side.

The radio antenna have not such issue. Unfortunatly, I've no wifi card
to test how great it looks. The "old" radio antenna may be quite over
the top, or on the contrary funny. Dunno.

Anyway, I will start to update network preflet to integrate this
interfaces graphical list view for and eventually during BG #21.
