I'd go for emacs_128.png.  But as others have pointed out, the current
Emacs icon is not that old.  And I don't think these new ones are that
much different to warrant a change.

AFAICS, the main difference is that they follow some sort of OSX
convention for editors -- the fountain pen in the corner.

So that may be the right thing on OSX, but seems a bit questionable on
other systems.  It's not just that conventions differ on other systems,
but the apparent main point -- the pen -- is missing in the smaller
versions that will often be used on non-OSX systems (OSX uses huge icons
compared to most systems).  Once that pen is gone, you're left with some
horns or an Ein a blue circle... not exactly an improvement, it seems to
me... [it will look even _more_ like the debian iceweasel icon...]

Is there a 16x16-version somewhere one can look at? Big icons ususally look good, but will the pen be visible in 16x16?
