Yeah, that's a good idea. Let's infringe on a Disney copyright. They
don't usually mind that sort of thing, do they?

What about a "stitch"? In the movie they say it looks like a koala and
I'm sure O'Reilly didn't use it on their books. :)
Geez, what's wrong with otters? It doesn't matter if O'Reilly has used
various otters on a collection of [Java|HTML|???] books -- as long as
we're not copying THEIR otter design. (Because they've used it on books
covering a range of subjects, there's no "brand identity" like camel ==
Perl) Besides, give O'Reilly another few years, and they will run out
of mammals and start using insects...or plants. The only company that
uses an animal mascot, and that believes that ONLY they are allowed to
use ANY representation of that species as a mascot regardless of
similarity to their own version, is...oh yeah, Disney...
What was that about 'stitch'?
Otters are cute and playful, and surely cgf deserves a say in this given
his "steerage" of the project. Should he start talking about "sprinking
holy otter pee" on the codebase prior to each kernel release, like Linus
does, just to push "otters" into the zeitgeist? (mebbe not. "otter pee"
doesn't have quite the same alliterative punch as "penguin pee")
'Course, it's all moot until somebody with artistic talent (e.g. not me)
actually draws something...
P.S. anybody remember the oil-slicked otter that Berke Breathed drew in
"Bloom County"? He was a "spokesman" for Exxon after the Valdez
incident in the 80's...shunned as a sell-out by the other members of the
