I like the "flat" look. (I also like the current icon, but it seems
the style these days is to be *very* elaborate, or simply flat.)

I wonder if this is also an opportunity to tweak a little more? The
black outline could be more prominent (IMO) in a "flat" style, and
perhaps the red "orbit" line looks a little lost? And could the
"shape" suffice, without the infixed "t"?

Mockups attached, based on `textadept.svg` from source. For the banter. ;)
