The folders should be names 16, 22, 48 and scalable for unsized svg. If
you add a folder, then the ubuntustudio/index.theme needs to be edited to
include it in two places. There is a one line directory list and then
there is a directory description section. Actually the theme description
could be changed too, right now it says "Comment=Extra icons only Studio
uses" If we decide to expand beyond that we should change that too.

BTW if there is a better icon theme to inherit than elementary-xfce-dark,
then that might be another thing we should run past the leads. The icons
that lubuntu uses for example are already pretty monochrome. Some apps
(most) are always going to have colour though, but having monochrome
submenu icons might help make them stand out... I'm not sure, art and
visual things are not my strong point.
