Then I don't understand, how can anything register itself automatically if qrc 
doesn't know how to retrieve the necessary information from the content it's 

FWIW, the recipes I've seen to create an icontheme.rcc file involve invoking `rcc 
--project` inside the icon theme directory, and then handing the resulting file 
off to qrc.
