Simple: the cache is a cross-desktop specification that doesn’t care for
the implementation. Therefore update-icon-caches was written from the
very beginning with the idea it could be managed by the alternatives
system. If the KDE guys write an implementation, we just need to
synchronize an upload.

This should not in any way prevent its use in gnome.mk which *badly*
needs dh_icons.
