Actually, one could wonder who was first. I'm not blatantly assuming
Adobe just took the swirl without looking at our copyright, but then
it's not entirely impossible either.

The fact that this wave of other usages of the swirl is fairly recent
(or is that a perception on my side?) could imply that this is indeed
the case...

The amount of time between slipping on the peel and landing on the
pavement is precisely one bananosecond
