I'm sorry for using such crude language out of the blue, but that is 
BULLSHIT.  KDE and Gnome do not have that different an icon system that 
they cannot be used in tandem.  In fact, what you're saying is that 
people working on unifying the appearance of the applications of both 
desktops (like the guys working on QtCurve and the various KDE-to-Gnome 
and Gnome-to-KDE style ports) should just give up, as what they're doing 
cannot be done, even though it has been.

If KDE and Gnome cannot share one unified icon theme, how do you explain 
nuoveXT?  Tango itself works pretty decently across both as well, and 
there's work ongoing to get Crystal SVG to work in Gnome as well.

After all, I thought this very "impossibility" was the point of the icon standard and icon-naming-utils...
