Hi Matt,
I completely agree this isn't a good default replacement. 

You are approaching the problem the right way without depending on
half-assed solutions (so I got a bit surprised seeing the icon theme
patch upstream ;). That said I think it would be nice to accompany the
icon themeing functionality with the two new themes (not a default) or
revert the patch to keep focused on addressing the icons without a
'good-enough-for-now' state.

I've fixed up the missing bits in the meantime and got pretty much the
full coverage with the set*. Granted with a lot of legacy and generally
sucky metaphors.
