It's not hard to migrate those icons, specifically, though, and leave
the others behind.  Perhaps we could just migrate *all* referenced
icons, and leave behind unreferenced icons?

(I don't know about you guys, but I have a ton of icons in .gaim/icons
which I'm pretty sure aren't being used, many of which are
byte-for-byte identical.)


The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws [that have no remedy
for evils].  They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor
determined to commit crimes.
