Yes, as I have already written, it is fine to suggest existing sets (as 
long as the license fits, of course). I will have a look at Tango, could 
you please provide a URL?

At first, (I think) we wont provide a tool that does this for you. Unless 
someone writes it in time (I won't). But my vision is that it will be easy 
to adjust the overall color palette used throughout all icons. Anyways, 
either creating all icons from scratch or importing an existing set will be 
enough work already, lets worry about one thing at a time!

It is important that we stay focused, this is about agreeing on a design, 
which will be difficult enough, so let's please be disciplined about the 
subject. Also please read the entire emails, the first question was already 
answered. (I don't mean to be harsh, I'm just mentioning it, because 
threads tent to quickly lose focus on this list... or stuff goes in circles 

Best regards,
