Thank you for your answer.

I haven't thought about the "derivative works clause" yet, so I am glad
mentioned the topic. My plan was to include some icons as resources,
but I think I will stay on the save side and won't use any tango artwork

But if I can be sure, that it is perfectly legal to include the icons
embedded in binaries as resources, I will probably use them a lot in
versions and other applications.
