I think it's still a bit early for this.  Perhaps hold off on any type
of logo granting until we at least have package management in place.
The wiki page would be a good start on putting up guidelines, such as
not putting . dirs in /~, making use of find_directory() etc.  As I
understand it, the package manager packaging tool is slated to have a
build in check to verify that packages don't voilate some as to be
determined rules.  Maybe the will also help keep things cleaned up as

So let's hold off on the logo idea, at least for now.
