Right, I think I asked about this behaviour when brian implemented the 
icon theme stuff. I don't remember what was decided, but the panel 
relies on the fact that we can put our fallback icons in 
${datadir}/icons/hicolor/. If this isn't guaranteed to work, how would 
you suggest implementing this?

Missing fallback icons are a release blocking issue for me, so let's try 
to fix it as soon as possible.

Personally, I'd prefer it if the extra required logic for this would be 
in the library, so that Xfce modules only have to use one API to get 
this right.
