So far the icons are stolen from the project explorer plugin. We need
custom ones so it's possible to tell apart code model diagnostics from
actual build diagnostics.

(hexagons? They are octagons here...)

I haven't run into this yet. A diagnostic range at that point might be
too short. Please create a bug report with some example code.
