If we're looking at a cultural problem in Islamic countries, there is some precedent there for having separate logos: Red Cross / Red Crescent have different symbols because the cross is offensive in those areas too (even through unrelated descent). I believe they're different organisations, and they also have a third symbol - a diamond - as a reserve. GNOME could apply the same thinking, though.

Would there be a problem using something like a stylised hand-print? It could be made to look recognisably "GNOME" with a G palm, yet still obviously a hand.
