In terms of screen-shot appeal and first impressions, the icons are one
of the things that look drab. However the current set are very nice to
work with (I've been doing a review of the old theme-argument threads
and this opinion is almost universal).

I think this is one area where we are going to find it difficult to
strike a balance between easy to use and first impressions. None of the
current icon themes that we ship strike this balance in my opinion.
