I meant, of course, that we don't need an elaborate specially written
license with elaborate restrictions.  "Debian grants permission to every
tom-dick-harry that wants to use this logo in any way-shape-form" would be
quite adequate.

Or don't license it: just use it on Debian stuff and grant individual
licenses on a case by case basis.  I doubt that you will be swamped by all
the requests.

What does FreeBSD do about their logo (or mascot, or whatever)?
