We were discussing also that in "IP[y]:" IP associates too much on 
vastly used term IP (Internet protocol) and all it's derivations. To no 
surprise there is already IPy module for Python which does exactly that 
- Internet protocols. Then we (I) also discussed about braking term "Py" 
in "IP[y]:" or necessity to use such term in logo at all. 

Thinking about favicon and logo at same time as making website does not 
seem strange to me. Previous logo can't be put in favicon if that 
matters anything. Even if not, after these days tries, old logo seems 
weary now to me and it sure wont fit in new coloring scheme which I 
understand is to be prepared. 

I tried to summarise what I read this two days, without trying to impose 
anything. I'm fine with whatever you decide
