Certain packages are effectively unusable without an icon theme
installed, e.g. gedit (the 3.x series), because by design they only
offer graphical icons for fundamental menu options. I can't say how
prevalent that is, though, because I always make sure I have Adwaita
installed to avoid that problem.
