make-theme-image: a script to make yourself an idea of a icon theme

I created some time ago a utils repository on github to publish miscellaneous scripts, but it's only recently that I have started to really populate it. One of my recent work is make-theme-image script, that downloads an icon them package, grabs relevant, user-specifiable, icons, and arrange them in a neat montage. The images displayed are the results of running

~ make-theme-image gnome-icon-theme moblin-icon-theme

This is quite useful to get a good idea of the icons available in a package. You can select the icons you want to display using the -w option. The following command should provide you with a decent overview of the icon themes present in Debian:

apt search -- -icon-theme | grep / | cut -d/ -f1 | xargs make-theme-image

I hope you find it useful ! In any case, it's on github, so feel free to patch and share.
