Soren's idea of the OC in the blue circle seems like a good idea, but my
preference is for a little
more mathy logo... there is no math in the circle logo aside from the \infty.
And I also think we
need a way to write octave. We have several ideas going, but who is going to
make this decision in
the end? It would be nice to have some guidance on this.
