We could never ignore you :)

How about this. With Lancelot when you go into the settings, it provides
you the ability to select a couple of icons a bit nicer than the current
Kickoff scheme does, therefor making it easier to switch back and forth
between icons used for the menu. This way here, you could easily set it to
the KDE button when demoing. The idea of the upstream branding package
isn't a bad idea either, but isn't that what the kde-core package really
is? I swore there used to be a kde-desktop package once upon a time that
gave you a vanilla KDE install.

Honestly, with something as small as the Kickoff button, I don't see why we
can't just leave it as the KDE button and look at a custom wallpaper
instead if branding is what we want. Though in GNOME they do have the
Ubuntu logo instead of the odor eaters image. Err, I mean GNOME foot :p
