What I'd like to do is come up with some sort of consciencous(sp?) ... do
we want a cartoon or realism?  I don't know myself...I like the crisp
strength of Jan' shows a seriousness vs humor, which, IMHO, is
appropriate to an RDBMS.  

The problem, as I see things right now, is we are spending too much time
going around in circles on the logo issue, and I'd like to lay things to
rest already :)

My vote is towards Jan's far as "official logo"...there is
nothing wrong with working on more cartoon'd versions from a humor
perspective, but, IMHO, Jan's work displays so nicely as shown by Dmitry's
work with it...
