Description of problem:
The home icon on the button in Nautilus file viewer should have its
front at a slight angle to match the general trend in the Bluecurve
theme. Currently, the front of the house is end on with respect to the

An icon-sized version of the emblem "emblem-home.png" would describe
my view of an improved version.

See my attatched diagram for a better explanation.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open nautilus
2.Look at home icon
3.I feel it should match emblem "emblem-home.png" so that its front is
inclined at a slight angle away from the viewer...

Additional info: me, nitpicking as usual.

That is an excellent RFE. The home icon's perspective has bothered me
for a long time. Additionally, it would seem like a good idea to have
the emblem and icon be consistent to go with the spirit of have the
entire desktop maintaining the highest level of theme consistency.

Stock icons are viewed from a front perspective and are mostly flat. 
The home icon in the Nautilus toolbar is a stock icon, therefore it is
viewed from a front angle instead of the normal Bluecurve angle.

Garret's comments are spot on.
