I haven't got an answer from the author of the discontinued Liquid 
Weather yet (who knows if he still checks this mail address, and it was 
only yesterday that I sent the mail), but here is why I consider them to 
be licensed under the GPL:

  Everything is GPL, EXCEPT FOR some of the icon sets, which are
  distributed with the permission of their authors."

We know which icon sets are meant here 
thanks again Lili-Anne Girard!), and the liquid theme is definitely not 
included in that list of exceptions.

Unfortunately, the author of the liquid icon set remains unknown. Maybe 
it is Matthew/"Matti" himself? Without an answer, we cannot know and 
give proper credit. Nevertheless, it will be no problem to include, 
modify and distribute the liquid theme, since we verified it is GPL. No 
need to worry anymore.

Does anyone disagree? Have I missed something?

If no one objects, I will simply add a section to the README with these 
findings for future reference. And then I can finally release 0.8.2 ;-)
