I think we will move forward with the RC as proposed and will 
fix/cleanup this asap. But we should in the future be more careful and 
communicate clearly the consequences of such changes. And building and 
testing before we commit such changes will probably also help to get an 
overview if it works as expected and if all necessary places are changed.

Related to the icon sets we should think about some better or general 
approach to introduce some themeing mechanism.
