[Mediawiki-l] Changing logo to no logo at all

Just edit skins/Monobook.php and delete the #p-logo div from the php 
skin, and do the same for other skins if you want.
As for those for visually disabled persons... The site would probably be 
better with a custom skin designed for ease of use with their computer.
$wgLogo isn't used anywhere other than defining the logo for the 
skins... And there are actually some skins which use a different logo 
than what's defined by that. Custom though... eg: Wikia's Quartz skins 
use a "Wiki_wide.png" which is actually 266x75px to give more horizontal 
room and avoid taking up to much vertical space pushing content down the 
((It might be an idea to create a new variable $wgLogos which is an 
array with a '###x###' key with the logo size it's made for... So 
Monobookesque skins will just use '155x155' and skins using other sizes 
can grab a logo of a different size to avoid stretches in any skin)).
