Well, that isn't what happened. I agree that if there isn't anything
else available that we should, at least temporarily, use the Crystal
style icons. A bad solution to a problem is often better than no
solution. :-\. However, in some cases there are KDEClassic/HiColor
icons that are almost exactly the same as the Crystal ones except for
the colors. For example: Kivio & Kugar. In many cases, there are
KDEClassic icons available and I believe that these should be used even
if they are KDE 2 style.
Actually, the requirement for HiColor icons means that the KDEClassic
theme should be deprecated. Only KDE will look for these icons in
"kdeclassic" so they should all be moved back to "hicolor" the only
exception is that if both a KDEClassic icon (KDE 2 style) and a more
modern looking HiColor icon exists then the older one should be
installed as "kdeclassic" and the more contemporary one should be
installed as "hicolor". It is possible in many cases that a HiColor
icon can be produced by changing the tonal range and color saturation of
a Crystal icon -- what I call "uncrystalized" icons -- as I did for Kexi.
