Lest it not be clear, "IMHO" means *opinion*.

The web is rife with complainers. Happy users don't say much, so that you see 
some mention that TDE is "stale" it does not follow that "most" feel that way.

IMO, Trefoil_Knot_3TM.png is far out of character with the nature of TDE, 
much too intense for a mature and stable product outside art, graphics or 
film industries. It would send a wrong message. TDE is not intended for those 
for whom bling is a priority.

OTOH, a gear is symbolic of something that works reliably and steadily, and 
"The wise are known for their understanding, and pleasant
words are persuasive." Proverbs 16:21 (New Living Translation)
