I still vote for icon #2, but I also agree with TimSpangler that a second [user configurable??] color would be helpful.  Since many desktops lean toward blue, an orange [contrast] color might be a good option to have.

Icons are not designed to be user configurable, so there isn't really any way to do that for most uses of the icon.  The icon should also be easily and universally recognizable, which means you want the same color scheme in all instances of the icon. I'm concerned that you guys won't be happy with #2, but unless #1 makes a late comeback it's looking like #2 will win.

I realize that they aren't configurable from an application standpoint, but if they are included in the exe they can be changed with the properties option "Change Icon" then I can select the .exe. then select any color that I wish.  I do agree that the icon should be universal and easily recognized.  Give me an inch and I'll ask for a foot  :P
