Some reference to the "w" might be nice, though I like the simplicity  
of the "T" icon and would be sorry to lose that. (Note that I write  
TeXworks with a lowercase "w", btw; I think it was originally  
uppercase, but I think it looks better this way.) I don't think the  
Textures logo need concern us; although both are based on a "T",  
that's about all they have in common -- I can't imagine anyone getting  
confused between the two.
