Hi David!
First I would like to apologize not only for taking those icons out of 
tango-common, but also for putting them there in the first place.
I decided to take them out, as we received a lot of complains about the 
cancel button.
I came up with the solution that they should live where they belong, in 
tango-icon-theme and gnome-icon-theme (not exactly those icons in g-i-t 
though, but gpl-images rather). They are probably going in quite soon, 
so no need to worry.
I had planned to take care of this earlier, but I got caught up in other 
projects. :(
