I aknowledge the nice work and please read the following as only 
constructive. :)

I have some little concerns about these icons. Tell me if I'am wrong 
but aren't they based on the previous Scribus'pen that was found in 
the former splashscreen? (It's so small, it's hard to tell) Also, the 
mix of pen and S shape makes it difficult to "understand" at first 
sight, imho. From that point of view, I prefer the pen in circle icon 
as a Scribus identifier (see below). Plus, there is a need for a 
black&white version. Finally, I agree we could have the choice of the 
underlying text for various needs, including localization. In that 
respect, the "stronger" the icon as a common denominator, the clearer 
the message!
