This should at least be done for the basic set of stock icons (former
gtk+ stock, KDE stock?). The sooner this happens the better. Once apps
start to use the icon theme all over it's going to be a mess renaming.

I can come up with a list of basic stock filenames
(verbose,descriptive). Is there any limitation wrt backwards
compatibility? I have absolutely no idea about KDE, so guys please speak
