I agree. I hope it could get some better integration with nautilus now 
with the new mimetype context menu changes.

I don't want this. gnome-icon-theme is supposed to be a base thing that 
very seldom changed, much like gnome-mime-data is today. Having to 
redownload megs of default icons because some theme you won't need changed 
isn't very nice. It also makes gnome-themes a hard dependency for 
libgnomeui, which might not be what we want.

As the packager of these for RH I will vote against this being in the 
core desktop. The dependencies are just way to API/ABI unstable and 
pain-in-the-ass to build (you *have* to patch them if you want to install 
outside your homedir).
