Thant was a good one indeed!
LXDE does have it's own icon theme, but gnome-icon-theme will be pulled
in anyway due to some weird dependencies. In order to not get too
bloated, I leave lxde-icon-theme out and use GNOME instead.
I also think that all desktops in Fedora should use a common artwork for
a seamless user experience. I might reconsider this as desktop people
have repeatedly changed the GNOME artwork without prior notice and not
even reverted the changes when they were asked to do so by many people
(one of them being the FPL).

I would love to not depend on someone elses bloat, believe me...
What you consider bloat is needed for cross desktop interoperability.
lxde-icon-theme has even more symlinks:
$ rpm -ql lxde-icon-theme | wc -l

This is gnome-icon-theme-2.30.0-2.fc13. You pushed it to stable just
yesterday, so you should not that it cannot be in the nightly yet. The
nightly still has 2.29.2-3.fc13.
$ rpm -qpl gnome-icon-theme-2.29.2-3.fc13.noarch.rpm | wc -l
Thanks for bringing the legacy icons back, but nether your changelog
entry nor the notes in bodhi mention that, so how is anybody supposed to
5717 is still a lot less than 6597 (2.28.0-1) and this is the source of
bugs like this one: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=573811
