I have no problem considering new ideas, however any new themes should be
well thought out with the project goals in mind.  Oxygen immediately fails
the usability/accessibility test, with the muddy Oxygen icon and widget
styles both causing significant regressions in UI element differentiation
(some would argue that this is just the "modern look", but I say that this
sacrifices usability/accessibility (something objective) for look+feel
(something subjective).

The other icon theme that Alexandre linked to does not immediately fail
the usability test, so it should be evaluated on other aspects such as how
well TDE can utilise its various icons, completeness, the overall level of
polish from an artistic perspective, etc.
