Can you use SVG widget for that? Or do you have to get the svg widget from disk?

The trick was just pointed out to me recently here on the list. You can now
"import as control" an SVG and treat it like any other image. It's genius.
Import the SVG, hide it, and assign its ID as the icon of a button. The
icon will be the same size as you make the SVG and the button itself can be
as large as you want.
