You caught me! I have no idea what the icon theme spec is... :-(

I'm using a single icon size and using gtk routines to do the resizing
from the iconfactory, using the preset icons sizes in gtk:
gtksize = GTK_ICON_SIZE_DIALOG;
gtksize = GTK_ICON_SIZE_DND;
gtksize = GTK_ICON_SIZE_LARGE_TOOLBAR;
gtksize = GTK_ICON_SIZE_BUTTON;
Image preview, OTH, is arbitrarily set:
w = 48, h = 24;
w = 68, h = 34;
w = 100, h = 50;
w = 200, h = 100;

Me neither. But Biju's idea sounds good.
