I like your version with the zigzag. I think we should use the zigzag
(of course, I was one of the first supporters of it :) as the logo, and
in parallel we could use this monkey as a mascot. Just think about the
complexity of the logo, i think the zigzag is recognisable even in 32x32
pixels, while I wont be sure that is enough space for a monkey with
addiction to coke.
