The mime-icons modules deals with this by defining special 
private xfce mime-types for the icons used by programs, 
extending the concept of associating icons to file types. This way
you can add/remove/modify the icon names and pixmaps without
recompiling any code. The extra types are defined in
and the pixmap is defined in mime.xml, files installed by xfce4-modules.
