Specification compliance of icon names

Icon names without trailing stars already exist in the freedesktop.org icon naming specification.

                             substitute functionality, like tinting
                             folders by code, or putting the regular
                             folder on a colored background.

 * 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

To do for Oxygen

Nothing to be done, places implements all of the naming spec correctly :D

Stuff that needs to be done in the code

  • Replace root folder occurrences (folder-red/folder-root) with drive-harddisk? (Discuss with kde-usability first.)
