I think Steven is referring to the tint of the green used in the
trashcan, as we changed the hue of the greens a bit in the palette some
time ago. I can't really say it looks out of place though.
I agree with Jakub that it would be bad to make every icon blue, nice to
be able to tell the icons apart by color aswell.
