A complete icon set would take time. Its a lot of work. Thats already 
well known.

Freedesktop is a hosting space not very different from sf.net except for 
its desktop orientation. It is not a guarantee of upstream adaptobility. 
  KDE most probably is not going to adopt it for example. There has been 
discussions about whether tango as a theme would fit into freedesktop at 
all though there is general agreement that a standard naming convention 
is a very good thing.
