i think the old tango is ok, well mostly ok, but the new one "mango" is has 
complex in the svg trics as oxygen is, It's a bit like this, the icon 
creators use basacly 2 programs to make them inkscape or illustrator.. and we 
use everything we can in order to create the best art our skils premit us to 
have. That inculdes masks cliping BLUR (yes we use alot of blur) multiply 
filters etc etc. 

if you askme reandering svg is not the best idea for icons, im taking about 30 
minutes to render some of them, yaeh some are prety complex.... Also svg is 
not realy scalable (I can debate on this issue alot)  but just check out the 
oxygen svg sources to fnd that most icons have svg version for each size...  
same goes for tango btw..
