No, no, no! This only makes some sense on Windows. On Linux we already have
the GTK icon theme mechanism. We don't need a theme changer like OO.o (which
is an outstanding example how not to do cross platform desktop integration).
We need this:
We can also have a different icon set on Windows. I think I will work on
implementing this before tearing apart the extension system to add GIO
support. The old icons will be embedded in the application, while the new
Tango icons will be installed in /usr/share/inkscape/icons/hicolor. This way
everyone will be happy including me (I am maintaining Gartoon Redux).
