[Tango-artists] Request for icons

The idea is that ok and apply should be the same icon. This doesn't work
so well in dialogs that have both Apply and OK buttons though. I'm not
sure what the solution is there. I really hate the idea of a button
saying "OK" anyway, as it's an abbreviated form of an English word, and
we end up with poor translations because of it, not to mention that it's
used a lot of times when things aren't necessarily okay.

Perhaps the dialog-* bits in the spec need a bit of review still. It
would be great if this could be brought up on a more appropriate list,
where hopefully other desktops' developers could chime in, such as the
xdg list on freedesktop.
