	Because they're not generic icons. If we remove the mailcheck applet,
the mailcheck applet icon should go with it.

	If you're talking about changing things to use icons which already
exist, then that might be reasonable but would need to be considered
case by case. However, moving gnome-mailcheck.png to
gnome-applets/mailcheck and installing it in icons/hicolor/48x48/apps is
a sensible thing to do if we don't make it use an existing icon.

	I think Davyd is doing some of this at the moment. Might want to sync
up with him.

	That's a bug in GtkAboutWindow, then.

	If an icon only falls under the "it can be useful" category, then
*that* sounds like a generic icon to me and should be somewhere like
