Another question from me:
Where is the minimum dependency of kdelibs/kde-runtime on oxygen-icons 

As it is a run-time dependecy it is absent from the build system checks from 
what I see, but I could also not find any README.packagers which lists oxygen-
icons as hard dependency. Seems packagers create a hard dependency on oxygen-
icons package anyway, but still would be nice to have that documented (to have 
something to refer to).

This question came up today for Calligra if the dependency on a certain 
kdelibs also implicitely brings in the Oxygen icon set, so the icons can be 
expected to be available.
