Here is a somewhat easier, albeit slightly less precise, method of creating
your icosahedron. With this, your don't need to worry about faces.

------------------- BEGIN CODE -------------------

module icosahedron ( radius = 1 ) {
foo = atan ( 0.500 ) ;

points = [
sph_to_cart ( sph(  0,  0,      rad = radius ) ) , //  0
sph_to_cart ( sph(  36,  90 - foo, rad = radius ) ) , //  1
sph_to_cart ( sph( 108,  90 - foo, rad = radius ) ) , //  2
sph_to_cart ( sph( 180,  90 - foo, rad = radius ) ) , //  3
sph_to_cart ( sph( 252,  90 - foo, rad = radius ) ) , //  4
sph_to_cart ( sph( 324,  90 - foo, rad = radius ) ) , //  5
sph_to_cart ( sph(  72,  90 + foo, rad = radius ) ) , //  6
sph_to_cart ( sph( 144,  90 + foo, rad = radius ) ) , //  7
sph_to_cart ( sph( 216,  90 + foo, rad = radius ) ) , //  8
sph_to_cart ( sph( 288,  90 + foo, rad = radius ) ) , //  9
sph_to_cart ( sph( 360,  90 + foo, rad = radius ) ) , // 10
sph_to_cart ( sph(  0, 180,      rad = radius ) )  // 11
];

hull()
for (p=points)
{
translate(p)
sphere(0.001);
}
}

To hull a set of points, there is a little "trick" that dispenses the small
spheres centred at the points. Just take the hull of a bogus polyhedron
having the points as vertices and an enumeration of the points as the only
face. Surprisingly, this polyhedron is accepted by OpenSCAD.

Here is one minimalist way to define a icosahedron using that trick:

module icosahedron(radius=1) {
// see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regular_icosahedron
phi  = (1+sqrt(5))/2;
scale = radius/norm([1,phi]);
verts = scale*
[ for(i=[-1,1],j=[-phi,phi]) [0,i,j],
for(i=[-1,1],j=[-phi,phi]) [i,j,0],
for(i=[-1,1],j=[-phi,phi]) [j,0,i]
] ;
hull() polyhedron(verts,[[for(i=[0:11]) i]]);
}

I would be happy if the change comes with an extension of hull() to points.

Indeed, there's some big opportunities to improve, also hulling
2d primitives in 3d space (which currently also don't really
exist, just partially in preview).

See https://github.com/openscad/openscad/issues/3632 for some
discussion into that direction.

ciao,

A plus to the small spheres is that you can get nice rounded edges if you
make them not quite so small.

As a tangential topic, how would one put numbers on each face, i.e., turn
this into a 20-sided die for Dungeons and Dragons?

It doesn't sound easy.

I would do it like this:

include <BOSL2/std.scad>
include <BOSL2/polyhedra.scad>
difference(){
regular_polyhedron("icosahedron", side=35);
regular_polyhedron("icosahedron", side=35,draw=false)
down(.3) linear_extrude(height=1)
text(str($faceindex),halign="center",valign="center");
}

However, there's a problem that the die won't be evenly weighted, so
it won't be a fair die.
