Babus(h)ka = grand mother, you were thinking matrjoshka (matroska).
In any case: http://matroska.org/, seems like its taken.

It is true that the domain is taken but the idea isn't to change the
project name but to create a logo. It doesn't look like this audio/video
project is using the matrjoshka doll as a logo.

My idea : start from the almost-ubiquitous icon for a computer (Main unit + monitor). Paint the lower half of it (as if hollow and cut horizontally), with a smaller copy of the same fabled icon "inside" (maybe with a faint horizontal line suggesting the idea of possible infinite recursion : after all, Fabrice, at one time, aimed to run qemu in a qemu virtual machine...), the "upper half (top of the monitor) being laid "aside".

That's the first time in 30 years I regret being so lousy with graphics and fine arts (the only drawings I can do right are medical dissection sketches (especially head and neck), and you wouldn't want *that* for a logo... :-)).
