I just had another thought on this: If you want, you can actually go ahead
and create a Debian bitmap for us to be integrated into debian-cd, similar
to what GRUB does for the rescue CD.

The bitmap needs to go into the chrp-boot script [1] which is used during
build. The current bitmap just seems to be a plain white/black block but
if you have look at the default script [2] that GRUB uses for the rescue CD
generated with grub-mkrescue, you see there is actually a nice GNU logo

So, if anyone wants to put a Debian Swirl in there, I'm happy to include
it. And since I can already confirm that the logo shows in the selection
menu of my iBook G4 when booting the rescue CD from [3], we can be sure
the Debian Swirl would work, too.
