Amarok2 with Oxygen icons

Today I've made Amarok2 use the new Oxygen icons from SVN trunk. Have a look:

I'm rather fond of Oxygen; I think it's an improvement over Crystal, and definitely feels refreshing. Unfortunately even Oxygen can't solve some of our fundamental problems with icons:

  • Amarok needs many very specific icons, like "Update Collection", "Cover Manager", or "Visualizations". We would need someone to create these icons for us.

  • Our release cycle is independent from KDE's. Sometimes we introduce a new feature that needs an icon. Relying purely on Oxygen, we would need to wait for the next KDE release to get a suitable icon.

  • The biggest problem: KDE allows users to switch to alternative icon themes. Most likely they're incomplete as far as Amarok is concerned.
