my guess would be that it won't work, at least not now.  the gnome2 icon 
theme is stored in the gconf configuration database, and xfce doesn't 
use gconf at present.  nor does it launch the daemon that allows you to 
retrieve settings.

personally i think it's a bit lame that they chose this route, to depend 
on gnome2 just for a stupid spinning icon.  is there really no way to 
fall back to some default icon?
