That bug is beautiful! It should be the Debian logo. (that "swirl" is
sooo ugly)

Think about it: a bug as logo! it conveys that:
- debian tamed the bugs, 
- is not afraid a showing a real bug, 
- never hides a bug
- likes bugs for their artistic sake,

That bug picture is a "aha" moment. It makes total sense to have it as
Debian logo.
