I like Richard's proposal.
I would separate the mechanics of appdata-icons.tar.bz2 from the xml
description a bit.
This is, the appdata-icons tarball is downloaded by the package manager
(or some hook/plugin of it) either by doing a HEAD request or because
the appdata.xml mentions somewhere that there is one icon tarball present.
Once that is downloaded and exploded, the xml could specify
I think you named this "relative"....? is this what you mean with relative?
So as I can see we support types:
url, stock (tango installed icon), cached (from the tarball), local
Is this correct?
(note that actually cached is a particular case of local)
