Out of those I like the 4x4 one. I think I still have mine lying around
somewhere but no one ever decided on a 'winner' or even collected them and made
a vote. I would hope that we could find one solid, simple logo that can replace
that disgusting, grainy, pixellated, fading fire text there is on the home page
that we can use for events, the web site or even merchandise. I'd wear and
FFmpeg-branded thong. Well, maybe not, but I'd wear a T-shirt.
