Well, you could probably expect Bill to file an accessibility bug about
it, if nothing else :) (Admittedly, most people interested in using
large print on the desktop will find it easier to select the predefined
LargePrint theme, but we shouldn't actively prevent them from mixing and
matching, and in particular I'd have thought we'd want the default theme
to be exemplary in as many ways as possible.)

True, although the user can at least do something about that by setting
gtk-icon-sizes in their gtkrc file... there's nothing they can do about
the metacity icons, AFAIK.
