Something I found interesting/useful was the small icon discussion...when does the icon start to break down? I had originally thought of only the 16x16 as requiring the simplified version and was on the fence for 24x24...but from the feedback, it seems that the icons need to be simplified even before that size. So, instead of saying that it's just horrible and unusable at smaller sizes, if we can figure out at what point the icons need to be fixed, then that would be constructive. I know in the Leon's package, there included 22 and 24 in addition to 48...and the 22 was probably horrendous...but there's also 32 and 36 versions that are used as well...how do those look?

I feel the need for a very punctual question: what is the size for our small icons, 24x24 as in GNOME HIG (http://developer.gnome.org/projects/gup/hig/2.0/icons-types.html) or 22x22 as in Tango (http://tango.freedesktop.org/Tango_Icon_Theme_Guidelines#Small) ?

I looked into it...and
Windows icons are 16, 32, and 48 pixels
Mac icons are 16, 32, 48, and 128 pixels
Tango icons are 16, 22, and 48 pixels

You can see a Windows/Mac comparison at http://www.xvsxp.com/interface/icons.php

Bluecurve has icon sizes of 16, 24,32,36,48, 64, and 96 pixels. Commonly used sizes being 16, 24 and 48...with applications asking for:
menu icons (16x16) -- icon_sizes[GTK_ICON_SIZE_MENU].name = "gtk-menu";
button icons (20x20) -- icon_sizes[GTK_ICON_SIZE_BUTTON].name = "gtk-button"; toolbar icons (18x18) -- icon_sizes[GTK_ICON_SIZE_SMALL_TOOLBAR].name = "gtk-small-toolbar"; (24x24) -- icon_sizes[GTK_ICON_SIZE_LARGE_TOOLBAR].name = "gtk-large-toolbar";
dnd icons (32x32) -- icon_sizes[GTK_ICON_SIZE_DND].name = "gtk-dnd";
dialogue icons (48x48) -- icon_sizes[GTK_ICON_SIZE_DIALOG].name = "gtk-dialog";

So I was thinking of covering the common sizes (16, 24, 48) and if possible the ones that are being used in the list above.
