I can understand wanting to separate themes, but I'm against it as IceWM
is already quite small, and if one wants a minimal installation one can
use "icewm-light" instead (which doesn't have the themes). I'll leave
the decision to the maintainer, though.

As for localization, I don't see any reason to split them. Having them
in the main package is the standard way. They do not actually use disk
space unless the respective locales-XX is installed, and the package
size difference is very small.
