Here are two screenshots with the new icons used with a flat monochrome 
icon theme called "Any Colour You Like", which I've used before and 
really liked on a dark GTK theme called "Buonanotte", and also on a 
light theme called "Clearlooks" for reference.

(NOTE: The menu panel icon is broken, I couldn't figure out how to fix it)

Looks nice to me, since everything has that monochrome look (most of the 
common apps are covered as well). I don't have confusion regarding the 
UBS specific menus because of the separators, but then other DEs might 
display it differently. Opinions?
