Some thoughts.

Green is ok, so a static icon is fine: keep the smiley.

Red / Orange is bad, so a pulsing or changing icon for atracting attention.  A 
red smiley with the shape like the stop road sign pulsating to an X.  An 
orange smiley with a triangle shape plusating to a - or _.  Red pulsating 
faster then orange.

For the other colors, the shape is not that important.

Who knows a good program for creating animated icons for linux ?
