As much as I hate to say it, I'm leaning toward the 1st version. Maybe
with some work on the shadows.

NOTE: While this might end up as our base shape, there's nothing that
says the inside has to use simple glyphs. We could have the whole paper
colored to represent certain filetypes with interior details. Point is
even if our base shape is simple (and a bit boring :P) the rest of the
design need not be.

So Sebastien, if you want to go with the 1st version but just play with
the shadowing that might be the way to go. Thoughts?
