Marc said:

If you are distributing Slony brochures, use the Slony elephant ... we 
have an official logo, that is used *everywhere* ... in marketing, I 
believe its called 'branding a product', and slipping in a different 
logo, IMHO, only breeds a sense of confusion and incohesiveness as far 
as the project is concerned ...

PostgreSQL Elephant != Slony Elephant != Mammoth Elephant

They are all different logos, for different products, and should be used 
to advertise their respective products, not a different one altogether ...

That says to me that you don't want confusion between products, 
commercial entities etc... with the community.
