more or less that is, mainly the problem is not if to use Tango or
Rodent or whatever :), but let the user to choose the theme he|she

Xfce has a default theme, then everyone can choose.  At the moment if
i change the xfce icon theme i don't have an homogeneus DM.

The best way to act is to fix the Rodent theme, then if the user
selects a different one, let's say Tango or any icon theme that will
use those specs, ALL the icons will be replaced.

you got exactly what i would :).

It shouldn't be that hard, and yes ... having xfce icons in icon
naming spec could help even in that direction.

Nowaday there are GNOME and KDE, but i think XFCE is part of the GNU/Linux DMs.

I would say GNOME, KDE and XFCE, and for this reason XFCE should try
to use as much as possible (and where possible) the freedesktop

This is just my own opinion.
