Actually, if you set the textAlign of a button, the icon moves accordingly
(although maybe not always what you want). For example, if you add an icon
to a button and then set the textAlign of the button to "right", the icon
moves left; and vice-versa.

It's a workaround, but I agree it would be great to independently move the
icon separate from its text.
