That's a good point - how long is the current debate on the logo front
going to take? If we could place a more immediate cut-off on the logo vote
web page and get some T-shirts out quickly this could help on 2 fronts:

      1. Money made from sales to help publicity for next release
      2. The t-shirts themselves would be good publicity.

I'd suggest finalising the vote within 14 days and then trying to get the
T-shirts out in a further couple of weeks if we can manage it. There are
lost of people saying they'd like T-shirts...
