It started off with that, then we just wandered on to other possibilities.

I like the ][ form because it's fairly unambiguous (I think it's
sufficiently distinctive from Apple's), and is easily made into a
recognisable favicon. There's nothing obvious to do with the IP[y] logo at
16x16 pixels, and it could carry the 'IP' connotations Klonuo mentioned.
(Aside: it's really tricky, trying to look at the logo as if I'd never seen
it before.)

If we want to just update the IP[y] design, does anyone have any good ideas
for the favicon? Something like group C above? My plain 'IPy' favicon is
only intended as a placeholder.
