Currently, a various gnome modules register their own sizes
for icons .. e.g., the GNOME accessibility capplet registers
keyboard-capplet == 48.
Any size that is registered as a pixel size, rather than
an alias poses a problem for "scaling up" the GNOME desktop,
because every such size must be set individually.
But it's certainly ugly to register "keyboard-capplet" as
an alias for gtk-dialog.
What I was thinking to do was registering a scale of standard
sizes, and then encouraging people to always use aliases
to those sizes
16 gtk-small (gtk-menu)
[18 gtk-small-medium (gtk-small-toolbar)]
20 gtk-medium-small (gtk-button)
24 gtk-medium (gtk-large-toolbar)
32 gtk-medium-large (gtk-dnd)
48 gtk-large (gtk-dialog)
( I'd like to not have the gtk-small-medium and make
gtk-small-toolbar either 16 or 20 )
Then, to scale up icons, all you need to do is redefine the
standard sizes, and everything scales up; e.g., go from
16,20,24,32,48 to 20,24,32,48,64
What do people think?
