... well /usr/share/pixmaps/ mostly contains ugly and old icons, you
should refer to /usr/share/icons/hicolor/ instead. 

... I haven't yet checked wether gtk.icon_theme_get_default() (& co) is
implemented in rep-gtk, but you may use them to get icons. At first it
looks for an icon in $current_gtk_icon_theme, then it looks in the
hicolor theme. If I remember correctly, you'll need to catch up the case
there beeing no icon manually, as the app else exits with err code.

Thanks for your work,
