Mascot and logo, Proposal 1

This got missed at the meeting, so it's getting announced here: an initial
mascot and logo proposal.

The mascot doesn't have a name right now, just a cryptic designation of
L315 so it can be referred to as something until it has earned a name.

It represents the user's individual TDE installation, typically customized
to that user's needs, and as such, can be found in multiple strange
configurations and doing various things.

The Etherpad page is here:

If you just want to look at a quick single image, here's L315 playing a
game with an Atari 2600 joystick: -- this is my
second favorite image so far.

I may add the plain image of L315 standing at attention at some point, but
I'm wondering if a better default pose is possible.

This includes a few situations and configurations of L315, and at the
bottom shows three applications of a simple and efficient logo derived
from L315.  Logos need to be as simple as possible, and this one qualifies
as simple, and is directly tied to L315.  My main worry is that there
might be someone else with a nearly identical logo that I don't know

What I need from you: nits with the implementation of the concept, with
L315's configuration, with the logo in the three icon ideas, and possibly
with the entire base idea I'm working with.  Suggestions for improving the
artwork only apply if you have immediately fallen in love with L315. 8)

Important thing to remember: Failed branding mascots are by definition
forgettable.  We want to to be memorable.
