That was part of my point the icons seemed to be half-assed
implemented even thought there is a complete documentation on how to
implement them (sizes for applications as well as Unified ODF
mime-types). Yet Linux seems to still hold 2.x version of icons
(pre-galaxy) except for the main application icon (orb gull).

As we move forward, how much of a priority is to finalize the
implementation of galaxy icons on all distributions (Linux).
