I specifically suggested this be done for the FC6 cycle.

Upstream is not looking to adopt Tango out of the fear that without
vendor support, it will look like a GNOME only project and thus scare
off the KDE crowd. Or so it seems. Thus vendor buy in is very important,
I for one, would love to welcome my new Tango overlords to Fedora since
I find their style very pleasing and I agree with the aims out getting a
unified icon standard.

It sounds like The tango developers and artists are very keen on
cooperating with us to make this happen.
