    I would much more prefer the red-or-burgundy-white-black scheme
    used in the Unicode consortium website. It's a good clear set
    of colors with lots of contrast, pastel colors just don't work
    across different monitors that well.

    (Of course, this is getting dangerously close to the "color of
    the bikeshed" discussion:

    > "Unicode speaks your language"...

    I have to agree that I don't much like the "savvy". One more
    alternative could be "Unicode spoken here", or a slight variation
    from the above "Best viewed by anyone". "Unicode savvy" just sounds

    After all this grumpiness I do like the idea of such a logo.
