Taking into account these and other comments, I've cut my original
set of twelve down to five and performed a few revisions.
1. Triquetra/gear interlace: no changes.
2. Triskele-T: thickened the triskele for better visibility at small sizes.
3. Tree-nity: added more branches and leaves, for a healthier-looking tree. ;)
4. Triquetra + small gear: swapped colours
5. Triquetra over gear: made the triquetra larger.
Top row is the original logos from the first draft, second row is the
modifications, third row is an attempt at the modifications as CrystalSVG-
style menu buttons, fourth row is the original-original (KDE3 K button,
easier to find on my machine than the T button) for comparison purposes.
Some of them still need a little more work (widening some lines more,
possibly larger leaves on the tree-nity, more thought given to colours and
gradients, and a good manual node cull), but I'm running out of weekend. ;)
