No, no.  I'm afraid the game is up, chaps.  Such perspicacious
observation!  Such penetrating insight!  How could we have dreamed that
anyone would uncover our daemonic plot to make the world a better place
through superior software by simply examining our logo?

My friends, I fear that there is going to be a lot of holy water
sprinkled in data centres over the coming months.  There will be much
weeping and wailing and a darkness shall spread over the face of the
net; lightnings and thunders and unwholesome smokes shall assault those
holy warriors attempting to drive out the daemonically possessed (Hint:
turn off the power *before* applying the Holy Water.)
