The problem is that doesn't actually help - you'd need to do a version
of the icon for each theme, which is something I'd like to avoid.

Right now, you boot up a *stock* desktop, and you have the gnome icons
(in the GNOME style), the config tool icons (in the bluecurve style),
and the puplet icons (in the echo style). That's *ugly*.
