I used Platonides' method on my site to change the logo for certain
name spaces.  In my Mediawiki:Common.css page:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
/* Use the Meshi Logo for the Meshi & Meshi-talk name spaces (roman
2009/8/25) */
.ns-100 #p-logo a {
 background-image: url(http://ezrat.jct.ac.il/images/meshi_logo.png)
!important;
}
.ns-101 #p-logo a {
 background-image: url(http://ezrat.jct.ac.il/images/meshi_logo.png)
!important;
}
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

I got this answer on this mailing list some time ago.  Don't remember
from whom.
