It is in CVS already.  In the spirit of OS projects helping other OS 
projects, the file is in GIMP 1.2 format (.xcf).  The file is located in 
"src/media" for a few projects - try Codec or CLI.    To create a logo 
in this style, just:

1. copy this file to your project's directory. 
1.5. (Get a copy of GIMP). 
2.  Open the image in GIMP,
3. right click and take a look at the layers. 
4. Remove both the text layer and the drop shadow layer.
5. Make a new text layer witht he project specific text - Times Italic 
anywehre between 48 and 56 point.
6. Then, Script-Fu -> Drop Shadow...

Sorry if that isn't very clear.  :-)
