  There was a Tango talk at the GNOME summit and I got the impression
that a motivation for the project was Firefox's icons, where they had a
hard time styling the UI icons for the Linux desktop.

  For Eclipse's application icon, my understanding was that since there
is no clear visual icon style for Linux, we used the same visual style
as the Windows icon for the Linux one.

  For tvtime I just made an icon that seemed generic, although the
result was pretty ugly.

  I can't imagine the problem being easier for any other "ISVs" trying
to write apps not specific to one desktop/distribution/...
