Believe it or not, this is the only way to stick a custom image on a toolbar
or button.  I guess what I could do is save and restore the clipboard data,
but this can get messy quickly if the data is not simple text.

Nope, but if we can agree on better names for the buttons, that would be
great.  Another option would be to stick that button on the dropdown, but
that seems less useful.
