Good idea (looks more consistent with other applications, I think)

My ideas was to try to use the KDE crystal icons to make it fit better on a 
KDE desktop.  Obviously this is not suitable as a universal replacement, but 
if you ever think of allowing icon themes then that would be very cool.  
(Additionally one would have to be able to configure the font and the 
background color of the widgets.  I'm not sure if that is already possible.)  
However, compared to the normal KDE desktop, the icons converted to XPM and 
built into pgAdmin look very bad because they don't have alpha transparency.  
Does wxWidgets allow PNG icons with alpha transparency?
