Update classic edit toolbar design

Description:
Although I'm not sure if the new Usability Intuitive enhanced toolbar will be eventually included in the base MediaWiki distribution out of the box, I personally think we should at least give the classic editing toolbar a facelift.

By "facelift," I'm just proposing that we update the icons, maybe use bigger buttons, and choose glyphs with better meanings for the existing buttons if needed. Even if this "beta" eventually ends one day, it would at least be nice to update the appearance of that component upstream too.

The enhanced toolbar is now at [[mw:Extension:WikiEditor]] and is the default edit toolbar on WMF wikis. On the other hand, it is being considered the idea of moving the old toolbar from MediaWiki core into an extension:

Eh.. according to bug 26914, WikiEditor is already bundled with MediaWiki.

The classic plain toolbar will not be redesigned as its own product that people use for its specific design and features it provides. It will be removed from core (per T30856) and may eventually be provided as an extension for interested parties.

With regards for WikiEditor ("2010 editor"), this is being bundled since 2011 (MediaWiki 1.18), per T28914.
