100% fix is loosely defined as satisfying the motivations/criteria 
outlined in the latest version of the proposal.

Note, however, that 100% fix is outside the scope of packaging 
guidelines.  One thing that needs fixing wrt guidelines, however, is to 
not regenerate icon cache on every single package install, hence, why 
this newest version of the proposal drops the use of 
gtk-update-icon-cache in %post/%postun.  On this, everyone from Core 
agrees (including Matthias, gtk maintainer).
