This is a problem, and the way that we combat it is to make several
versions of every icon.  I believe there are three, but I'm not sure on
that.  Basically, super small, bigger and then scalable.  As long as the
icons on the dock use the themes correctly this shouldn't be a big deal.

Think of it as we suckered the art team into hinting all the icons
already ;)
