I've been watching all the discussions about this, and increasingly think
we're not looking for a logo; we appear to be looking for a symbol.
One of the criteria was that it shouldn't be based on the word `debian'.
I've never really seen a good argument for this; many (if not most)
commercial logos are based on the word (Sony, GMC, Canon, IBM, Kellogs,
KLM, Nokia, (dare I say it) Microsoft, ...).
A symbol, however, is a different kettle of fish.
