I considered using Atari /|\ logo in Hatari icon, but I think that's
trademarked and therefore unlikely to be legally usable as-is in
the Hatari "logo".

However, if the resulting shape is clearly distinct from the Fuji logo
and also in different color (e.g. green) from one used by Atari (black,
white, red), I think it sounds good!
