Yup.  And the real announcement text, asks specifically for a logo that
can be used *with* the current mascot, or separately, so the design should
work with the beastie.  I'm not sure how you say "Make it work well with
the devil, stylistically speaking" in a logo request, but we'll figure
something out. :-)

The FreeBSD Project yet again learns the following important lesson: don't
ever put anything on a web site before you're ready for the world to see
it, even if it makes it easier to edit.  You'd think after we had 3+
releases prematurely announced on www.slashdot.org due to postings to the
FTP directories during replication that we'd have figured that out.
