RTL languages question (was Re: Evolution and support for rtllanguages)


While the topic is about applications UI and RTL languages, I wanted to
ask if icons should be mirrored when using RTL ? For example, in
Rhythmbox, should the direction of the arrow of the play button be
mirrored (as in http://cfergeau.free.fr/arabic.png) or not ?
