Probably, because these icons are pngs without higher res versions that
could be used under hidpi. Unless we move over to using SVG icons I
guess that's as good as it gets for now. We have svg versions of
breeze, elementary and sifr sets I believe, and I think I see the svg
tango source files for the tango pngs in icon-themes source dir. So we
may have some capacity to do something nicer eventually via svg.
