Can you remind me the correct way to use generic-icons? The spec isn't 100% clear about this:
it's meant as a fallback if the iconname based on the mimetype name doesn't exist, right?
use <icon> field if set,
otherwise use "application-x-ole-storage" as icon if it exists,
otherwise use "x-office-document" as icon if it exists
