Awesome work, all!

Note that I *strongly* encourage any logos not already available as SVG to
update to an SVG version. Not only are SVGs generally more flexible and
reusable because they can be scaled up, it'll also make it a *lot* easier
to add a high-resolution version of your logo for visitors with
"Retina"-density displays: <
