Tweaks before tweaks for Fedora 20

The Gnome developers just keep moving the target on me. All I wanted to do was see icons on my context menus.

You use to be able to just toggle a couple of keys using gsettings.

Now you have to overwrite a whole key

gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.xsettings overrides "{'Gtk/ButtonImages': , 'Gtk/MenuImages': }"

(the keys you used to toggle were menus-have-icons and buttons-have-icons under org.gnome.desktop.interface, but they’ve been stripped out of the schema).
