While this sounds like something which could be hard to integrate with
the other icon details, I first misread it and got another idea: it
might be possible to place a connecting icon separator between TeXing
and viewing icon.

Something with transparent background (toolbar color), connecting the
icons before and behind it.  It would make no sense to click on it, I
guess, but maybe a tooltip could be displayed.

Ok, maybe this is a bit much to ask in the visual easter egg
department.  But it would be one idea.

Here is another: at least in Emacs, tooltips can be pretty much
arbitrary content, including images.

Maybe we should start (or end) the respective TeX, Quick view, BibTeX
menu entries off with the toolbar icon image?  That would be sort of
like a keyboard accelerator display.

How about a lion with a telephone receiver?
