So the questions are:

These questions don't make a lot of sense to me. Light symbolic icon
theme doesn't work well with lighter UI themes. Dark symbolic icon
theme doesn't work well with darker UI themes. Otherwise the contrast
Well that's why I explicitly said: "the answer to 1/ limits the possible
answers to 2/".
Hence if the system/default UI theme is considerably light, you
automatically go with the dark icon theme.
Yes the alternative is to keep using the "Default/System" theme. But as
you note, we would need to know whether this is a light or dark theme.
Now there may be a way, but I just can't find it. I am a little lost in
all this GTK+ theming thing. We don't want to use light icons on a
system light themes, nor dark on dark.
So either someone gives me the solution to this, and then I think
keeping the system theme is clearly the best solution (at least for
Linux distributions. On Windows and OSX, this probably doesn't matter),
or we have to choose one of our new themes and make our own default
choice, not caring about what how the system theme is configured.
Last alternative is of course to keep using color icons (since they go
on every shade of grey), but then we go against the opinion of Jimmac
and other designers.
3/ Since "Default" won't be the default theme anymore, how should it
renamed? Basically that's the theme which follows the current desktop
So should it be "System"? "Desktop-integration"? Something else?
'System' looks good to me :)
Seems most people think "System" is good. I guess I'll rename it this
