I would say that the "unleashed" has an even more diabolic front cover.

This is one important reason for keeping beastie as it is.

I also had to look into some book to refresh my memory of Greek history 
when I heard of "daemons" the very first time in the late seventies when 
I have had my first contact with Unix at the univerity.

Of course, people ignoring everything which does not fit their horizon 
will make an issue out of this.

But who will give FreeBSD the guarantee that the removal of beastie as a 
logo will be the last issue?

I think that this will just open the gates.
