Hmm, I've not see the dragon before, but even so, the dragon is a 'cute'
cartoon character, whereas the elephant looks mor like something I'd give to
my 2 year-old daughter. It is a very good elephant, just not quote right for

Agreed. I have played with versions of Slonik (the PostgreSQL logo) but
didn't get anything I was happy with.
I think we should wait to see what Max comes up with and then consider all
the options and make a formal decision about it between the dev team
(currently myself, you and Mark). That may sound like you will be outvoted
as Mark & I know each other so well, but trust me, he probably likes your
elephant far more than me - he's into cartoon/animal type logos!
