Theoretically, this shouldn't be that difficult. I know Wikimedia

I'm aware the logo used doesn't conform to the logo guidelines; it's

see a point in changing it. I'll email Canonical about this.

Custom shape cutting is usually done by supplying an additional path,
showing the cutting pattern. The onlydesigns one has an example.

Certainly. I could probably include these in whatever script I write
to generate these tomorrow.
