Hm, that's good to know. I had in mind, that the used function to create such
a file was replaced by another, but didn't know the status. Nevermind, found
it (man eutils.eclass), but maybe I'm not enough Linuxifed, to like it, that
I have to grep through the files to find out, what the name of the function
may be and where it may be implemented, before using man to get what I want.
The function does not test, if the icon exists btw..
