As an - up to now - silent reader of this list I have to agree on the
horse not being distinguishable enough.

There's already a branding page on the wiki now and I really like the
logo and the guidelines (proposed?) ober there:
http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Marketing/Branding

The only thing I could imagine would be a logo-variation with the
paper-plane. Perhaps the plane could "fly" through the "O" in the
LibreOffice-logo posted on the Wiki? I think that'd make it a great
graphical enhancement for t-shirts and stuff like that without making
the official logo unrecognisable.
