This has to done very carefully.

The only thing that I can think of is "SVG".  Nautilus so far seems to
be the only gnome application that uses librsvg to render SVG icons, gtk
does not have support for svg icons.

 "There has grown in the minds of certain groups in this country the
idea that just because
a man or corporation has made a profit out of the public for a number of
years, the
government and the courts are charged with guaranteeing such profit in
the future, even in
the face of changing circumstances and contrary to public interest. This
strange doctrine
is supported by neither statue or common law. Neither corporations or
individuals have the
right to come into court and ask that the clock of history be stopped,
or turned back."

-Robert Heinlein, Life Line, 1939
