Andreas Kainz is the maintainer of Breeze icons. He did not only
submit the LibreOffice icons in Breeze style but also most of the
icons for KDE software. Colors are reserved for the app level in
Breeze, functions are basically monochrome. I challenged him two years
ago with the idea of a colorized Breeze set- and will not stop to poke
him. The colors would need to be defined according the functional
scope, e.g. style stuff in blue, device things in green etc. Another
issue with the set reported by users is that line strokes are very
thin. And we want to have the set in different sizes with a level of
detail depending on it. Hell of work, altogether.
