It is only a solution for stock icons. If an app adds a new icon it
is not feasible for a theme designer to anticipate and provide
reverse video versions of every potential icon. I've proposed that
for 2.1 we add a monochrome flag to icons, and a dark flag to
themes. Then we can auto invert the colours as necessary. This
won't solve all issues, but it should help.
