I don't have any problems with Tango in the short-term - Wine doesn't
match my desktop anyway. I just don't want to see a huge amount of
effort get put into it if a theming system is going to be put in

But since the icons are being replaced anyway, I agree that using an
already-existing icon set makes way more sense than creating all-new
