Yeah, exactly. We need something which could be slapped
to a book or on CD and seeing this, everyone would recognize
it as clearly NetBSD stuff - even it the image would be small.

The flag-rising crew image is ~okay for front web page, but
unfortunately mostly useless for anything else. The beastie
is cute logo, but we need a symbol which would be clearly associated
with NetBSD and NetBSD only.

I like the beastie as such, would be nice to have some
variant of it. The Wasabi samurai-type beastie is nice, for
example. Perhaps it would be possible to come up with some
animal imaged in style of the beastie? Or perhaps a dragon
or unicorn or phoenix^Wfirebird or some other mythic animal?
IMHO we definitely want
something what known to run fast :) Or something entirely abstract.
