Having stumbled upon this issue very recently, here are my 2 cents.

   - Svg images should be devicePixelRatio aware without having to set a
   source size
   - Likewise, QQuickImageProvider should know about devicePixelRation,
   without having to set a source size.
   - I would absolutely love an icon format, but I'm not a fan
   of QTBUG-49820 proposal. As mentioned, it basically requires a full scan of
   the directory. The performance implications are quite scary. I see a few
      - Use a list of files ( sources : [f1, f2, f3] ) or a list of sizes
      - Use some sort of pattern string  : source : "foo-{32x32,64x64}.png"
      (with @x detected automatically )
      - Accept .ico/icns files. The limitation is that these formats do not
      distinguish size and density (I quite like the idea of these too things
      being independent, but I don't think it will be used that often)
      - Use some sort of icon-descriptor file. But this solution feels a
      bit cumbersome
      - In any case, I feel that the extension should always be specified.
      ( source = "path/to/foo" really does feel TOO magical )

If we are only speaking about size/density (and not other features of QIcon
like modes and states), I think extending the Image item would be more
beneficial than adding a new type.
