Sorry for the two previous (and empty) emails... rekonq made me a joke, it
seems.

The problem here is not to create the icon but to package them in a way
AOOo can use: If you look inside the compressed file there are thousands of
images and the naming convention is not easy to understand. Someone will
need to explain how to build that icon set.
On a side question... freedesktop defined a standard way to name icons: if
AOOo change to that standard (yes, I know, it's not easy, but I'm
speculating...) maybe everything will be more easy. Maybe it could be
possible to use the icons provided by the desktop environment. This way
AOOo will only need ONE fall-back theme to use when something is missing.
Just my 2 crazy ยข.

Cheers
Ricardo
