Putting a separate icon off to the right side seems like it would look very
cluttered.  I think my personal preference is:

1. Overlay the 'saved' icon in the bottom left corner of the icon on the left,
the way it is currently.
2. Don't show the 'saved' icon anywhere.
3. Show the 'saved' icon on the far right side.
