Ok, I failed to use the time machine properly ;-)

Looking at that page, we can exclude the weather.com, Beginning and 
Grzanka icons, they are clearly not the same as the icons the xfce 
weather plugin uses. Unfortunately(?), it's the same with the other 
icons. That leaves only those "Um" icons to investigate, which are 
supposed to have been included in the liquid weather core package, but 
where can we find them nowadays?
