Well, the thing is, I don't think the GNU will be absent, that's one of
the problems :o)
But yes, it would definitely be a good marketing exercise.
Allow me to go back on my previous "no birds" idea, and post my latest
Never let it be said I have ever made up my mind :o) The idea here is to
continue the whole free flight / freedom thang - ignore the crap font
kerning and other issues, those can be fixed, but what do peeps think?

I'm not sure that's a great idea for mugs (it's something which could go
out of date, and isn't something obviously something you would want on a
mug - my opinion only, of course), but definitely posters. Yeah, it's
cheesy, so what - it works. Also easy to repro onto yellow paper using
only a laser or something. I like it. Plenty of scope for cheesy puns
and we can extend the theme into a marketing campaign. Soopah.
