Thanks for the flowers! If my text covers mostly proprietary / commercial
software then this is not about being narrow-minded but because all the other
cases are usually "trivially" handled already.
Most developers on sf.net will either
a) use KDE or Gnome libraries and therefore get icons using the iconloader.
Most icons they need _are_ usually shipped with the default icontheme. And
those extra icons which they need are usually abstract enough that they
usually don't follow a specific style.
b) adhere to the default icontheme of the respective desktop environment that
uses the toolkit of the application to integrate it as good as possible with
c) not care and just choose what they like.
