[Qgis-developer] Webpage

Speaking of website improvement, I've just dropped in a proposal for a
refined - and more importantly _vector-based_ - QGIS logo here:

I've tried to stick to the original logo as much as possible as clearly
many people are emotionally attached to the current logo. Hopefully, the
proposal also refines the logo with more subtle lightning.

Having QGIS' website use _one_ standard logo throughout (i.e. header logo,
download button logo, etc.) would already be a nice improvement.

Hope this can be of use to the project.
