I had a whole long response written out, but my Email client ate it, so I
will summarize below:

a.) The artists can't help with technical aspects of Trinity anyway, so no
manpower is being diverted from bugfixing, functionality improvements,
b.) A standing pool of new artwork is a GOOD THING and can prevent UI
c.) We are not obligated to use anything the art team comes up with, but
if a majority of devs/users like some of the artwork we can incorporate it
d.) We are still under the umbrella of KDE e.V., so we won't get sued for
using their trademarks at this point.
e.) The "crystal T" logo is not infringing anything, as it is not a direct
copy of the "crystal K" logo.  If anything the background similarity is
merely an homage the Trinity project's origins.
f.) Konqy may have to go.  Fortunately he only shows up in a few places in
kdelibs/kdebase; replacement suggestions are welcome.
