Wine in Tango

As of XP themes can specify their own icons. For some dlls I believe
shell32 they need to provide their own shellapi.dll or whatever it is
called. I think that would be the way to proceed. I would suggest to
make Tango the base theme as it integrates well with KDE/Gnome and
also OSX. Using themes (some of the infrastructure for it is missing
though) you would be able to override the Tango icons.

Of course some icons don't exist in the Linux world, but for example message boxes or icons for files and folders are available this way. Then one would not need to make a KDE- and a Gnome-wine.
