The more I think about it, the more I agree with Michael on this,  
especially as I start to consider all the places our logo would need  
to be changed (ack!).  I'm not so worried about the cost if we have a  
clear motive and purpose.  Do we feel a change is necessary and are  
we willing to make the change "across the board".. everywhere that it  
will need it?

Initially I thought we were only going to be tweaking the logo to  
make it more usable in certain contexts, and to add the additional  
tag lines.  I must have misunderstood, but it didn't sink in until we  
got this spread of new logo options.

I'm not afraid of change, but I'm reluctant on this aspect.   
Essentially I want to be sure that the benefit is clear to the  
community and supporters.   I may be convinced to give it my vote if  
our rationale is clearer.

Still thinking about it...
