Nice work :).  I'm happy about the support of my idea.
Do you code PostScript often with an editor??

By the way:  I wonder if it is a good idea to have *GIF*-logos in the
contest.  All GIF-related stuff resides in non-free but the contest
states GIF or JPEG.  In my opinion it is a further sign of not
thinking enough about the logo problem when starting the contest.
I'd prefer PNG or the native GIMP format.  Even TIFF would be better.

Kind regards
