I've thought about a new logo for commons for a while now. If only I could
manage to invest some time to push the new commons site skin based on

Maybe we could host a contest, like they did for log4j [1].

I'm really bad when it comes to photoshop and the like, but I'd like to
have a logo where the letters of "commons" look like little puzzle pieces.
