I'm here... So, I think we need to act quickly to make Echo the default
for the beta, to test the waters before F10. For Gnome, the way to do
that is to change the inheritance of the Fedora icon theme to pull in
Echo instead of Mist.

Wrt to coverage, I have worked pretty hard this cycle to make Gnome use
icon-naming-spec names wherever possible, so things should be good as
long as Echo has near-100% coverage for

a) icon-naming spec
b) GTK+ stock icons
c) application icons that show up in the menus of the default install

I can look into doing the fedora-icon-theme change.
