After thinking a bit more about it I think we can use the Tango icons in their current form. To me it sounds like the main issue is that we need to merge the icons into our own dlls. Windows XP style themes allow you to replace icons. If we would improve our theming code, so that we can use icons from theme files then we would be able to use the tango icons.
