At this point Tango is Creative Commons but according to a post on their mailing list they are planning to move to public domain. (http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/tango-artists/2008-September/001890.html) Further there are some more licensing discussions. I doubt their intension is to not allow open source projects not to use their icons. We could ask them to relicense them.
