... thanks to it's strong, graphic outline that isn't even present in
every icon. Some have single black oultine, others have a second inset
line (tweak took), others have no outline (gradient tool), others have
multiple outlines (zoom tool).
The black outline ends up disappearing in black/dark themes, so it's not
usable without a light outline for strokes (bezier and freehand drawing
The oficial icon lacks consistency. It looks unfinished because too much
icons look too different in style than the rest.
If somebody takes the current oficial set and makes it more normalized,
I bet that people who want Tangos won't be so against the current set.
I'm not a Tango zealot. I find it better than the current set and I have
my arguments to think that it would be better to put them as default.
But i'm not against improving the current one, at all.
