Well since others have more or less turned this into a "basht he devs"
session I would like to praise them for their hard work and personally thank
everyone. I didn't mean any harm by my comment about not having the
authority to decide about the icons. The subject of icons vs. no icons will
turn into our own little "vi vs. emacs" because its all about preference
(and please don't start flaming about text editors) so in the end: The way
the desktop ships default may or may not need icons because the user will
configure it they way they want either way. Its not that big of a deal, we
can put a tutorial for desktop icons on once edgy releases ...
problem solved. :)

p.s. - sorry i said anything in the first place, i re-thought my statement
and this email was the result.
