Personally I wouldn't worry about making icons on the desktop look a
little messy, as the default install doesn't give the user any icons
on their desktop. I've had a sore sleepless night so I'm a little
frazzled or I would try to give you more useful comments. I do think
the lozenge logo can be applied to almost any image though. If it
makes the logo side a little heavy - cool, we like Ubuntu. If it makes
the photographic side a little heavy - that's cool too since it's nice
to look at. :o)

Sounds good! I have to run to see the doc in a few hours, but I'll try
to stay on IRC as much as possible when I return in case anyone wants
to do some last minute voting for our suggestions to give to Canonical
by Thursday.

Thanks! We surely need it!
