The python setup requires that the specific scripts run as root; the
TeX stuff requires rather tricky things like world-writable

In any case, it seems as if one proposed solution does indeed require
a daemon sitting around watching for changes to the icon directories
and regenerating the cache on the fly.  That's what I was commenting
