Making the art greyscale is a matter of running:

This is not the optimal approach. An exact greyscale conversion such
as this loses many details of color contrast. For example a smooth
Red->Blue gradient will be a solid white area. There are algorithms
to convert to greyscale with different grey values for each original
color channel, these should be investigated before a wholesale
conversion is done.
As to Tango itself... Just because one group decided to put out some
"standard" icons doesnt mean everyone should use them. I am
ambivalent to the issue, considering nice SVG icons to be a plus, but
also considering small sharp icons handy especially when working on
embedded platforms. And Tango's icons in particular do not appeal (or
dis-appeal) to me. We can do better.
