I like the last one best.  However, the official capitalization of the 
project's name is "NetBSD" so the stylized upper case 'E' isn't quite right.  
I wonder if the trident can be incorporated into the 'D' instead, especially 
since it is based on a reverse 'D' in any case.

While I am posting anyway, here's a me too vote for keeping the Beastie as the 
mascot.  I think that we should change the Iwo Jima image to a simple Beastie 
on the main page.  Perhaps we also need a new contest for main site artwork.
