If you want to help make new kdeclassic icons put them in kdeclassic.

You are mixing hicolour and kdeclassic again. Icon themes work fine,
if there are missing icons in a theme such as kdeclassic feel free to
fill them in.

I never said that, i said we won't ship icons in hicolour because that
is incorect (hicolour being for third party apps).

Our support for hicolour is exactly the same as Gnome's support for
it. We both ship with hidden=true in the file so you can not select
hicolour as your theme because it is not an icon theme but is a
fallback namespace for use by third party applications. You can find
the definitive index.theme file for hicolour in freedesktop.org's
CVS, and you'll find it also has Hidden=true in it.

Then fill in the gaps in those themes, don't clutter up the hicolour namespace.
