The symbol shown for the 'tab' character in the clipboard preview looks very messy due to the small font size used in the preview. This makes it difficult to tell at a glance what is actually there. Perhaps a different symbol for the tab character would be a good idea. For example, a single horizontal arrow pointing right (would this have to point left for right-to-left languages?) would convey the intended message, while being much more readable.

Add task-recurring and appointment-recurring icons

KOrganizer uses these icons, which are missing from Breeze.  In Oxygen,
they are implemented as symbolic links, and this patch takes the same

This patch does not provide size-32 icons.  Would such icons be visible
