Dear David:

I prefer #6 (Aquamacs 1.x series) because it's simple and bind it with 
GNU Emacs. In my opinion using pencils, notebooks or a keyboard only add 
some confussion.

Perhaps improving color (or shape, transparencies or similar) could be a 
good alternative, but I'm not a designer so :-)

Anyway, whatever icon set you choose, I keep using Aquaemacs ;-)
