I'm not keen on creating rules to "force" the issue though.  That is not a 
good "use" of our power.  We have constraints to work within, those 
constraints being what the operating system can handle.  Lets not make this a 
political thing.  We're not going to go ban the use of ldconfig in %post 
until the rpm folks work out a way to do it in stages when needed, so why 
would we do it for icon cache too?
