There are *a lot* of packages installing icons into /usr/share/icons.
What's the benefit of having to update all these packages if we can
address it by simply fixing *one* package (libgtk2.0-bin)?

If only libgtk2.0-bin ships the triggers file this has the added
benefit, that we don't generate trigger events if update-icon-caches is
not installed (e.g. if you run a KDE only desktop).


Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
