"The Tango Desktop Project exists to create a consistent user
experience for free and Open Source software with graphical user
interfaces." But this user experience is not consistent due to
representation of folder colour (now inshades of blue).

Folder in shades of yellow colour is standard-default representation on:
GNOME (since 2.0 - June 2002)
OpenOffice.org (since fist builds - 2001)
Mozilla Thunderbird (since 0.1 - July 2003)
Mozilla Firebird/Firefox (since 0.6 - May 2003)
Microsoft Windows (since Windows 3.11 - December 1993)
Microsoft Office (since 7.0 - August 1995)

Yellow folder icons has been familiar to most users of leading Open Source
projects for past several years and even to most computer users for
more than 10 years. Please consider suitable change in Tango icon set.
Thank you.
