I talked to the tango guys on irc (#tango on freenode) and they are willing to relicense fonts if we know which ones we want. We need to email the tango list for that. At some point in the future a lot of tango fonts will become public domain and another part (the gnome theme set) will be licensed under the LGPL.

So with a small amount of effort we should be able to use tango in Wine :)
