Hi all,

First I wish you all a great new year.
Now, to get in the subject:
The greatest looking icon theme I ever found (the one I still use) came long ago 
with the Baghira theme.
The icons are very very nice.
I must say I still use my own custom made (compiled) Baghira full theme because 
I love its look.
Since Baghira is not suported anymore (for years now), its colorful icons could 
be reused?

My 2 cents on the subject...
