On the other hand, it is difficult to imagine that the Elektrostore
swirl is independently created starting from a straight brush stroke.
<http://henning.makholm.net/debian/swirls.xcf> is the logo bar from
www.elektrostore.se, with a genuine Debian swirl in another layer -
try turning down the transparency to see how the geometry of the
spiral matches too.

The Debian swirl used is from
<http://www.debian.org/logos/openlogo-nd-100.png>, rotated 53 degrees
counterclockwise and scaled to 40%.
