Add an icon for people that like to have Root (/) as a Places bookmark
Change the style of drive-harddisk-root to match.
Makes sense to me. Now that I see them all together, I agree that /_ is a bit better. It seems much better for the folder, and at least no worse (and probably a bit better) for the disk.
Any other VDG comments, or should we land this?
BTW, @ndavis, you're doing so much good work that I would recommend you apply for a Developer account so you can land your own patches. You can read about that here: https://community.kde.org/Infrastructure/Get_a_Developer_Account
BTW, once this goes in, I'll submit a KIO patch to use the new icon for the current Root Places Panel item. If we end up not removing it after all, we might as well use the nice new icon! :)
