Putting this here in case it helps anyone or inspires somebody.
I like pixel-art, I like high-contrast, I like black/white borders. I dislike tango, I liked the gnome2 style.
This theme is basically gperfection2 (http://lokheed.deviantart.com/art/gperfection-sup2-Icon-Set-18530981) by lokheed with symlinks to try and stamp out all the tango I can find by attempting to comply with the (under) documented icon-naming-spec.
This theme is not original, not great, and not clean. It exists because of spite.
I assume the licence is GPL as most art is orginaly by Jakub 'Jimmac' Steiner and was released as a part of GNOME
