I was thinking of making the triquetra-type image (overlapping balls
whatever) in place of the T in the gear (originally a K from KDE).  As
that is one location that needs to be obviously be rebranded if we are
to trully become our own entity away from kde.  Other imagery would of
course need to go as well and I will work on creating a list of other
apps and stuff that I think might be good to change their art for.
Suck as Chalk, and in sme cases it might be good to know what the
image for for the DE is before creating an entire set of icons and art
that would go with it.  I do need to however, either find a list of
art that needs to go or to create one.  Otherwise, it would almost be
like chasing a bouncing ball in the dark.
