i actually like these both pretty well.  i'd be hard pressed to pick.
 thanks for trimming some of that whitespace. :)   how's this, i'm not
sure what Chris Townsen's feedback was, but i think you should either:

a) pick one of the two color ones above and call that your submission

b) or if you are having a hard time deciding, ask for people on the
dev@velocity.apache.org list to vote between them.

whichever way, i think we're probably about ready to wrap this up.

that'd be great.  it'll be smaller than it currently is too, right?
