kdesupport is also a fine idea.  Up to you guys.

There is more maintenance work for you in kdesupport, though.
You'll need to tag it yourself for example.

But kdesupport does make a lot of sense, especially since I doubt
you have any KDE specific code in the oxygen icons.  And no translations.

Interesting.. Fedora 9 has a oxygen-icon-theme rpm which looks like all the oxygen icons.
