For application specific Icons you best place them in a qrc.But I'm not sure what the best practice is here, but I think KStars is already doing this and Kate maybe too.
Kind regards,

We have in place a solution to load the Breeze icon theme from "icontheme.rcc" on Windows. But how can we do to also use app-installed icons? Can we just register two rcc files? Should we change the code to load every *.rcc file in the data dir, so apps can provide their own, instead of limiting it to a single one?
