The Tango project is not about creating one theme-to-rule-them-all. It's
about providing an icon style so a developer knows how his application
should look to feel 'native' on the linux desktop. You are more than
welcome to create a custom theme that follows the Tango style guidelines
and has the folders that suit your/your distro's needs. In fact you
won't be the first. SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop ships with such a
theme . Ubuntu's Tangerine is another example . And there's also
the gnome-icon-theme with disctinct folders .

Feel free to file specific bugs in the freedesktop.org bugzilla.
Attaching the fixed artwork would of course be greatly appreciated.
