Don't forget that a11y icon themes should be ported too. I just updated
bug #319041: now the SVG B&W theme is based on icon naming standard and
it's using the build framework from tango.

Issue: How to add an icon for Podcasts

Details: Jimmac has a cool podcast icon here[1], designed for banshee (I
don't know if it's yet used and/or installed by banshee). This icon is
really useful for Rhythmbox. Let's me assume that a valid name for icon
naming standard is "remote-podcast" under Places categories. Let's me
also assume that this icon is not well fitted in base icon theme, so it
should be provided by applications. Moreover a KDE app could like to
use/provide/install the same icon.

My Questions:
     1. who should install the icon? Rhythmbox? Banshee? Both? An
        external *-icon-theme-extra package?
     2. where this extra-but-common[2] icon should be installed? In
        "hicolor"? In "gnome" icon theme for GNOME apps and "kde" for
        KDE apps?

[2] note there are also extra-but-unique icons. For example the banshee
logo, installed under hicolor. This it right.
