Yeah; I keep not doing anything about the icon theme because (a) the
applet should be using stock icons [1] so it'll pick up your default
theme if you set it, and (b) I don't think Tango is the best thing since
sliced bread.  I just don't really think it's _that_ much better that
everything should use it by default, including nm-applet.

I certainly don't want to do anything that would preclude somebody from
using whatever icon set they choose, but I feel that whatever the
default icon set is for the applet is completely irrelevant because the
distros theme should override it to match that distros look & feel


[1] applet.c, ICON_LOAD() calls gtk_icon_theme_load_icon() which pulls
the specified icon name out of the current icon theme
