OK, so we have yet another vote for the new spiky logo.
Even although you are not on the committee officially - what do you think
of loosening our tight grip on the logo a little as proposed?

I also think that the overall color should stay green.

So if we really want to open this up a bit what do you think of setting up
a Wiki page for people to add derivatives (this term gets me thinking that
we might want to actually 'license' the logo?). I imagine that nothing
much would happen at all. We are all busy enough and the user base might
be just slightly smaller than Google's...
