So was I when I saw James updated Plinth with the Butterfly.

I want to make clear that I didn't mean to make the Gnu deasappear
from the wiki, as I thought pictures were under cvs.

Needless to say I thought it was because of the above. Personnaly, I
only vaguely remembered threads where most people seemed to enjoy
Robert's proposition. Here it is :

As you said, there was no clear agreement. So, I think the best is to
remove any proposition from the first page and put them to the
VisualIdentity page. Robert listed some (all ?) of them in his e-mail
from november. However, I have no time right now to do so, and others
may do as well, or come with a better suggestion.
