Makes sense really. Currently I have this update-icon living at 
https://bitbucket.org/solusos/update-icon.git for use within SolusOS 2 
(as we don't have an update client and we don't use dpkg/apt, so we use 
PackageKit :))

If needed/wanted this could go into another PackageKit repository on 
gitorious, unless you guys are happy keeping it on bitbucket? The main 
reason I have it there is because we now use Phabricator for a code 
review system (http://inf.solusos.com/diffusion/UICO/) and update-icon 
could be another project to benefit from that infrastructure.

Mathias, if you're interested in getting this into Debian that's cool. I 
might need your help in getting the debian/ packaging right, it's been a 
while since I laid my hand to that voodoo :) Also I need to prevent 
update-icon from running on LiveCD's. I believe it's enough just to 
check if "live" is in /proc/cmdline on Debian too?  I'll make sure to 
whack a setup.py into the tree too for easier packaging (literally two 
files need installing).

Also is it acceptable to say that we don't want update-icon to ever run 
on just KDE and GNOME now? Given that GNOME has the fancy banner 
nowadays, and no matter how hard you try GTK just looks ugly in KDE :)
