I hope that there are still a few other things about Debian that
distinguish us from other FOSS projects.

FWIW, I think the swirl is wonderful as logo. It can be read as sign for
everlasting expansion, or, in the other direction, converging to one
common goal [1]. 

On the other hand, I like the idea of a fluffy stuffed animal [2],
simply because Debian is not only a machine running with german
efficiency, but a community of like-minded people. I don't think a
stuffed animal paying tribute to this more social side of Debian would
belittle the project.

     around that common goal #-)
