The icons are technically themed right now, but there are probably some issues.  
The current icons are just under "hicolor", I assume that other themes can 
override those icons, since we just use the gnome/gtk icon theme APIs to load in 
whatever icons happen to be around for the current theme, and since right now 
the "hicolor" icons are the only ones, thats what we get :)
