Admin posts: connect 'as admin' post with 'admin' icon keyword

Title:
Admin posts: connect 'as admin' post with 'admin' icon keyword

Area:
icons, communities, entries, comments

Summary:
If one has an icon with the 'admin' or '_admin' keyword automatically select it when making a post or a comment as an admin (I meant when you tick the 'as admin' checkbox).

Edit: looks like _admin or something even more unusual would be better as there would be a good chance *only* users who wanna have this would.

Description:
Not sure automatic selection is possible in which case it could be automatically use (so you wouldn't even have to select an icon the way it works at support). The latter could be problematic if you wanted to use a different icon for once.

How would that work if someone has multiple admin icons, e.g. different ones for different comms?

I might have a community management setting, where you can choose to work as the community, and then select an icon to use as your icon for admin purposes for that community. Then, upon ticking the admin post tickybox, when an admin icon exists, it would be a) selected via keyword, and b) notification box saying something like "your admin icon for community X, keyword, has been automatically selected." And then if that person didn't want to do that, they could pick a new one by the keyword.

Though it strikes me that this could be annoying.
