Right.  Common as in "character-map", "terminal", "text-editor"?  Those are
shared between GNOME and KDE, not shared between applications...

And your argument is "whatever that doesn't fit is not common."  Which really
makes me ask the same question: why did you even bother writing such a long
email.  Just don't use the theme.

No.  How do you get tango icon theme, and funky icon them, and klunky icon
theme, and bluesie icon theme.  A theme is not a theme if you can't change it :).

Ehem.  Which is exactly the problem of the approach you preach.  You're
removing the question.  You're saying "don't want to change themes".  You are
NOT proposing a solution.
