I'd go for the 12 stars and gnu inside, only I'd like to have a barely
sketched gnu image instead of the FSF one. Fits the logo purpose _much_
better IMO. I have a clear image of what I mean in my mind, too bad I
can't draw... :-)

And there should probably be some additional "font" (EUFSF?) logo for
suitable, distinct uses.

Maybe I'm a little bit on the practical side here, but the argument that
the logo should be "catchy" does not get to the point IMHO. A logo should
be communicative (hence the GNU and the stars) and keep informative in the
broadest contexts -- including engraving (looking forward to my EUFSF key
fob!), 2-color printing and such.
