That's a flippant argument. I can appreciate wanting to move on, but
the project's image is as important to its success as its code.

I think at least the balance issue (raised by James Ong in this
thread) should also be addressed. Some aspects of design are science
(based on cognitive science and the way human perception works) as
much as art. I'll even accept "you're crazy--the logo is perfectly
balanced" or "we're intentionally going for an unbalanced logo to
underscore flex themes x, y, and z," but I think saying it's just not
important is a mistake.
