Yes, I'm aware of that, aborted transaction = user is notified of
somethng broken. So the question is if xdg-icon-resource is always
present and is known (is it?) to not fail unless the file system was
remounted read-only or the binary is of the wrong elf format or other
catastrophies, then better fail early than late.

Of course the actual work not having been done by this script is
negligible, but I just don't want to silence away any failures in all
scriplets for the sake of (presumably) allowing rpm to install
further on.
