Thanks for your input, Carl. I think perhaps your artistic tastes are a bit
different to most of the people commenting here. I think we're going for a
more minimalistic look. Your logo is technically impressive, but (speaking
for myself at least), the extra elements and colours look somewhat

I agree matplotlib's logo isn't perhaps a perfect example. Perhaps Sphinx's
banner shows better the sort of thing we're aiming for:

OK. Does anyone want to have a crack at a favicon to fit in with that?

This is the advantage of having a BDFL. These questions get resolved and we
can get on. ;-)
