[Geany-Devel] Drop GtkStock and use symbolic icons

I think adding support for vector icons is great, but removing the gtk stock icon feature, that's ridiculous, why don't they just update GTK to support any image format, rastor and vector both, as stock icons? Then it would be up to the theme to choose format.But I do strongly believe vector is better for the future because it's resolution independent, if GUIs relied 100% on variable formats/sizing like vector images and grid unit sizing, then it would be much easier to work with different form factors.Don't get me wrong, I know the performance fallbacks there would be with older machines, but it would be perfect for new technology.
