I'll change to FreeIcons (see my reply to Olivier).

Yeah, I think that would be cool. Also, but that is perhaps for after
4.0, we have to use the freedesktop icon theme spec. Perhaps you do
that already?

And then there is the idea of icon themes being part of the gtk theme.
It's in gnome 2, but I have no idea where it's set and how. Also there
are probably some standard sizes for icons. It may be nice to use those
for the different icon sizes, at least for the panel.

For 4.0 I think it would be nice to have the same themes available. I
don't know how best to unify them or whether we should do that at all
(making it one setting, I mean).

I'll just start by changing the name,
