The fact that we've gone in exactly opposite directions with our vote
is then probably a good indication to stay put.  We should only make a
full change on this if we're all convinced we love the new one.
Otherwise, staying closer to what we have should win.

I'm OK staying with the current logo too.  Perhaps this has been
rehashed already (the previous thread had more than I was able to
digest, forgive me), but why not keep the current one and simply
change the font to one where the I has serifs?  That seems to be the
main limitation of the current one to me, as I do like the idea of the
serifed I matching visually the [].

Just a thought...
