Changing icons in project "on the fly"

If you have all your custom icons on a card in your project and you want to
change all occurrences of a particular icon with a new one it is as easy as
changing the icon "ID" for the new icon to the same icon "ID" as the old
icon (and changing the old icon ID to something else or deleting it). I
notice that you have to close and re-start livecode to see the changes also.

But what if you use a "system" icon  for a lot of stuff. Those have ID's
like 200086, so if your project has like twenty icons with the ID 200086 and
you want to change it to a custom icon that is ID 1600 or such like can you
change the system icon to that and delete it or something or do you have to
go through and edit every occurrence or you icon on every different stack
and card?

I like having that special card with all my icons and graphics. Someone on
that list suggested it and it is a great idea.
