I have to say that I'm not crazy about the ][ yet, but I'm trying to
keep an open mind and it's slowly growing on me.  So you guys may be
onto something here :)

Of the three banners, I really don't like #2, and I'm ~50/50 on 1 and
3. The larger spacing between ][ in #1 is visually nicer, but I think
it moves away from an 'I' and ends up looking more like Apple's roman
II.  The one in #3 keeps the idea of the square brackets but almost
completely blends into the capital I of IPython.

So I guess that means I lean towards #3...

That would make B2 the preferred favicon then.
