michael came up with the draft logo with ffmpeg-zigzag. following a
collaborative community effort, mans used michaels logo to come up with
the zigzag-ffmpeg logo.

imo mans can have his zigzag-libav logo and ffmpeg can have michael's 
original ffmpeg-zigzag logo.

i am not a lawyer. if someone threatened me with a lawyer i'd tell them
to go fuck themselves. michael is more polite than me haha.
