Hi Kris,
I've poked Matthias Clasen on IRC about it.  If you feel like we should
back of the changes, I'll revert.

GNOME is pretty much dealt for in the gnome icon theme, the reason for
the gtk+ stock facelift is the Windows-ports.

To be honest I don't want to bother with all this work to provide an
'alternative' icon theme. The unique gnome 2.0 style make gtk apps on
platforms such as MS Windows or Mac OS X totally out of place. I'm quite
sad to see you hold on to that.
