Yes!  I think that "cr.png" has nailed the design.

"lambdarechopng.jpg" especially got my attention before, but I thought 
it needed major aesthetic changes to fit Racket better.

I think "cr.png" is a big step in the aesthetic fit direction.

"cr.png" also has nice continuity of evolution from the current Racket 
logo and preceding PLT Scheme logos.

"cr.png" is a bit geeky and slightly awkward -- moreso than the current 
Racket logo -- but it's supposed to represent a computer programming 
platform that grew out of Scheme, so a bit geeky is appropriate. And it 
has more character (no pun) than the current Racket logo.

I could see "cr.png" as a rough draft of a good final version of the 
logo, with the design being pretty much complete, and needing only some 
experimenting&tweaking of subtleties of the rendering (in the graphic 
artistry sense).

(I don't mean to discourage further ideas with this opinion; maybe 
someone has an even better refinement, or some different ideas.)
