Sorry, I was fooled by apt-file showing packages from multiple suites.
Both of these packages *used to* ship icon-theme.cache, but medit
is no longer in unstable, and numix-icon-theme-circle no longer ships
icon-theme.cache. So I think it's only balsa that does this, which makes
me continue to question whether balsa should do so.
