OK, cool. I'll try to dig these out.

Anyone know of other general-interest stock icons we should add?

Good point. We need to think this through.

Possibly the simplest solution is to go back to gtk 1.2's
locale-specific rc files.

For the really common locale issue (RTL vs LTR) there's already
support for just shipping an icon for either direction.

Need to poke tigert. ;-)

Yep. (Though for the latter, again we need someone to draw them.)

Another thing I just thought of - tigert weren't the current icons
redone with 1-bit alpha in mind? We are displaying them with full
alpha now, if they can be beautified in light of that...
