Yeah, I see... I suck at this :)

It's not about not thinking broad enough -- they voted for the best design, 
which was a good point for itself. For those 2 in the banner, that's true, 
it would be a plus.

Logged in TODO. Should we organize a contest? It would need pretty strict 
rules though, to get something that represents mod_perl in a good way and 
re-uses the current logo. I think it might be hard compared to having a 
designer do the job though.
