Gimp Tool of The Day: Rotate Colors

I needed to convert an icon from one color to another*. I couldn't use the simple bucket fill tool The Gimp has (at least, I don't think I can) because the icon contained a variety of shades of color.

Have to say, The Gimp saves the day again. This can't be the only way to get this effect - what other ways are there to do this?

Thanks to freeiconsweb.com for providing a sample icon I could plug into this example.
