Hello! Just my 2 cents:

I agree with Lluis that there is too much shadow, but not in the small 
logos. Where I notice it more is in the big logo ([1]): according to the 
shadows behind the logo, the light source would come from the left-upper 
corner; however, that rule is not being respected for the shadows that 
are inside the logo (I mean, those caused by the own "sticks" of the 
logo on the sticks that are behind the others...).

And thinking again about the colors, which I still don't like very much: 
why don't play here with colors that we all know coming from other 
logos? For example, using the three colors of the GTK's logo ([2]) and 
one grey colour from the mono logo ([3]).

Then, I have done some modifications: less shadows and GTK+Mono colours. 
And I have uploaded my proposal here [4]. What do you think?
