Specification compliance of icon names

Icon names without trailing stars already exist in the freedesktop.org icon naming specification. Most icons in here should go to their home modules instead of residing in kdelibs - this not only makes for a better overview but also reduces disk space in case not all modules are installed. And, of course, prevents icons being misused for wrong usages.

Generic Application Names:

 * suggesting this for inclusion into the icon naming specification
 ** not in the spec, but let's keep it out of there anyways,
    it's not really suited to be a standard icon

Applications which are to be considered part of the base desktop, such as the calculator or terminal, should use the generic icons specified in this specification, while more advanced applications such as web browsers and office applications should use branded icons which still give the user an idea of what function the application provides.

To do for Oxygen

Icons that are in the spec, but not yet in Oxygen's apps/ (after renaming) so they need to be added. Descriptions taken from the specification.

   The icon used for the desktop's font preferences.

   The icon used for the desktop's multimedia preferences.

   The icon used for the desktop's screen saving preferences.

   The icon used for the desktop's theme preferences.

   The icon used for the desktop's file management application.
