oxygen-icons]

The documentation team would definitely like to change many of these
icons.  A bunch of blue question marks look ugly and aren't really
helpful in identifying what the documentation or category is about.
Not to mention that several of these entries already have their own
icons.

If I understand you correctly, you'd rather us add icons to
oxygen-icons for these?  Named something like "help-online",
"help-contents-controlcenter", "help-contents-man," etc?  Note that we
don't really need new icons for these.  We would just end up copying
existing relevant icons that already exist in oxygen-icons, so there'd
be two copies of identical icons floating around in there.

Right now, the Application Manuals, Control Center Modules (though
this one's broken currently), and manual pages have their own icons
done much like this review request would have done for Online Help, so
we'd also need to fix these in the process.

Thanks,
T.C.
