I also have a question about Threshold since (some of) the original KDE
HiColor icons (now KDEClassic) were made with drop shadows that were
outside of the icons size.

Do/should we specify a different number of pixels to add to the size for
different size ions to arrive at the maximum size?

E.G.(6.25% with minimum of 2):

	16x16	+2	18x18
	22x22	+2	24x24
	32x32	+2	34x24
	48x48	+3	51x51
	64x64	+4	68x68	
	128x128	+8	136x136

or do we use +2 for all sizes?
