GUI options for dock icon/live preview

There should be a GUI option for toggling between the Live Preview dock icon, and a static icon for the VM's OS. If the user has very small dock icons, the live preview has minimal benefit, so a static OS icon would allow quicker identification of the relevant VM.

Also, the Live Preview icon should allow the user to turn off the 'iMac-like' bezel surrounding the preview. This is a subjective design choice that some (I think many) users would like to remove. Dock icons are usually something that are very easy to modify in OS X so being locked into a set style is quite frustrating.

EDIT: found the option to disable the live preview icon. But I think if the standard VB icon can be replaced with an OS icon, that would be more useful. The option to remove the iMac bezel around live preview would still be appreciated.

Its possible to disable the live preview a long time now. The design of the preview window will be not changed.

I am unable to disable the live preview. Neither of the items under the dock icon's right-click > 'Dock Icon' menu actually do anything.
