It might be possible that Gabriel's scripts can be extended so that they
will pick the icon file with the right size (or do anti-aliased scaling in case
the right icon size is not available as file) depending on which target
(fremantle, diablo, chinook, etc..) the package is being built for...

This would make it possible to have proper icons for every distro version
while still not having to have different debian/control files for each one.
