Well the symlink stuff is the same as I am doing for
gnome-themes-extras, although I want to have symlinks for as many 
distros as possible. 

Yet, in my opinion the current set of icon names used, especially for
the menu categories, are ugly and often misleading so I figured looking
at rawhide that there was a plan to clean this up. I guess not ;) I
guess my start at migrating g-t-e to icon-* names is a waste of time
