I've followed the discussions, too. And got the impression that the very 
most people like the icons for their design but shouting for colors.

So, a +1 to keep the currenty design but to send them simply to a paint 
shop. ;-)

So, you think that a big hint like "3.4 will be with the old b/w icons 
but we will do everything to give you back the long-wished colored icons 
with the next but one release [3.5 or 4.0]" is not good enough and the 
people cannot wait for the next but one release?

If so then we have (probably) the first new improvement that has nothing 
to do with IP clearance.

Do you really mean ODF file or maybe PDF files? I remember discussions 
to include the fonts also into PDF files that also let to legal discussions.
