Yes, those are the ones. Only later did I read the
text better and understood that they are icons from
pre-existing themes.
Oh, and attilio, my laptop went bust (doesn't power

and I can't really promisse of being able to make the
icons before etch releases. 
But if I was able, this is what I would do:

I would get the svg sources
for the icons I did (
and make them more simillar with 

The main change would be having a white border instead
of black, inverting the colors (like in these two
links) and making a better triangle with rounded
corners for the warning icon.

Then, to give that final glassy look (web 2.0 kinda

The trick would be to create a shape in inkscape on
top of the icon, and make it white and with some
