Thanks for your comments.  Just to make it clear, I agree with you, we
don't need the logo at any cost.  If you don't find anything with a
minimal consensus, it's fine with me to stop.

That said, there was the chance to have a designer for the logo and I
thought that we don't have the logo and this could be an occasion to
involve the community in something not code related, so that more
people than usual can participate.  The logo would be used on the web
page and probably nowhere else.  There are already other Emacs'
packages with a logo, I knew of org mode [1], but after a quick search
I found that ESS [2] and Gnus [3] have a logo as well.  Probably also
CEDET has a logo [4], at least the name of the banner file at the top
of the page suggests so.
