I had a look and in fact the stuff for keeping track was still in place,
but not the actual use of it ;-)
kde3's KIconFactory::createPixmap() was the code using this collected
data, but it's gone in kde4 ;-)

... and #68528 didn't happen again in kde4, anyway.

Code cleaned up, thanks for bringing this up.
