Icons: Yasis vs. Dropline Nuovo

I think that the two best options so far are :

- keeping the default gnome icon theme, which is currently updated and is
nicer every day.
- switching to Tango or to a theme that follow Tango guidelines. (But I
admit that Tango itself is way too blueish for my taste. it will never fitt
on an Ubuntu Desktop).

Those two themes are widely tested and +/- complete. (or it will be in a not
too distant future) They integrate well with the desktop.

Switching to another theme will :

- possible bugs or inconsistencies (because of lack of testing)
- possible ugliness (if an icon is missing and the default fallback doesn't
fit at all)
- endless discussions on this mailing list because everyone have different

That's, of course, only my point of view ;-)
