SOOOOO stupid... as you can tell by my rants, and other peoples comments 
on that thread :)

How does it look outdated? It depends which icon theme you have. If you 
mean showing icons in menus and on buttons, which personally I very much 
like, there is (or was, if GNOME guys didn't drop it) a global 
preference to turn this on/off for yourself.

I don't see any difference in the screenshot, except different icons 
from the theme I use.

Custom icons, must get it into default/builtin GTK+ icon set (or Tango 
or however that works) if you want to drop them, or re-hard code them as 
XPMs in the source code like they used to be :) (actually I think 
"colour" icon is available in stock/tango/named/whatever icons).

Meh. Even though we'll eventually be forced to follow stupid GNOME 
direction, we have until GTK+4 to start caring. I'd rather just disable 
deprecation warnings around the stock icon stuff until then, personally.
