Yes I noticed that, and that's one of the reasons I left for
now the crystal theme. The commit that removed the Oxygen
theme (actually a revert where some files had moved) also
teaches where to put a new iconset, something that was not
clear for me.

Would that be tango? I think we use them already. For all
I know, the tango files are labelled GPL but I think that
refers to the software used to create them and not to the
files themselves, which I understand are Public Domain.

I think we may have to remove other icons but I haven't
looked at all into the base icons yet and I am crossing
fingers that some of them will be covered by the SGA.
