Good point.  It's validity may be questioned here, but not by me.

For my part, I'm totally against diminishing the significance of Beastie
in any way shape or form.  Putting my money where my mouth is, I just
came from the FreeBSD Mall, where (cheapskate that I am), I bought 3
shirts and 4 bumper stickers.  And in the past, I've only ever worn or
used logos if they were for the Red Sox, the Patriots (and even those
sparingly), or a free shirt.  Hey, free is free, right?

That said, I certainly won't be moving to another OS if Beastie should
disappear.  He's not the reason I fell in love with FreeBSD.  Of course,
I'll still dig up the Beastie images where I can and put them back where
they belong.  I fully intend to keep Beastie visible in all my FreeBSD

Of course (at the risk of starting a *real* holy war), I'm a recovered
Catholic (read: "raving athiest"), so maybe my opinions and support
won't carry much weight.
