I grabbed them. Uploading soon.

I'm not feeling it personally, and I am increasingly feeling that using
the Oxygen icons as a base is clashing with Sebastien's current style.

Once "media-skip-forward" is done I'll upload.

I want to get a set of glyphs done before we proceed.

Regardless, you have to copy him as close as possible. You do this hard
cut-off thing to your shadows that really stands out in contrast to
Sebastien's or even Oliver's. Just look at the wiki now. "list-remove"
vs. "media-eject"

This is one thing I will not let go. They *must* be consistent
regardless of artistic expression.I will now have to go through the
current icons and make a list of what needs to be changed. I think I'll
have to stop uploads until this audit is done. I should have pushed
harder on this sooner.

So I think Oliver's work most matches the soft realism of Sebastien's
while Daniel's has that sharper KDE feel to me. And I think this is the
*heavy* use of them as a base.

I really think we're having language issues here as I know I've said
similar things in the past. I feel it's not getting through. Is it
better to continue and just get stuff made or take a break to step back
and evaluate?
