=======================
The Button Mixin.======
=======================

=It takes 3 arguments:=
- the background-color ($bg),
in our case we will pass it the color vars we defined above.

- the icon ($icon),
takes one of the named icons from the Icon-Object™

- the icon position ($iconPosition)
Vald values are 'left' and 'right'

=And does fancy stuff=
1. Figure out the lightness of the passed background-color via the lightness() function and set either a dark or a light text color.

2. Loop over the Icon-Object™ until the name matches the passed $icon parameter and then

  2.1 If $iconPosition == right select the :after element and set the corresponding unicode entity as the 'content' value.
