I'm following a thread on k-c-d[1], in which they are discussing 
icon-related stuff.  One of the points raised in that discussion by 
Jonathan Ridell and confirmed by David Faure:  All KDE apps (meaning 
apps stored on the KDE SVN server) should install their icons to the 
CrystalSVG theme.  The "hicolor" theme is only to be used by third-party 
app developers.

In KDE-Edu, we install many of our icons to hicolor[2].  I propose to 
install all of our icons to CrystalSVG, to follow the spec.  I believe 
this simply involves renaming all icon files from hi*.png to cr*.png 
(does anyone know differently?).  I am willing to do this.  Any discussion?

[2]: All KDE-Edu apps install their app icons to hicolor, except 
KGeography.  In addition, Kig and KStars install action icons to hicolor.
