You are of course right, it would be good to involve the community. I
could not resist drafting up a logo myself, in the minimalistic style of
the projects you mention above (not that I would be capable of anything
that requires more skill). The background is the current AUCTeX webpage
color, and the highlighted E is of course for Emacs. Since I don't have
a good eye for color or kerning or design or anything related, I attach
the source if anyone wants to change it. The font is free and part of
TeXLive.

Best,

Tamas
