I'd mentioned that before.  Personally, I love Midiappy as Web MIDI mascot
(he's one of the few stickers on my laptop) - however, as a logo to be
incorporated into software, he doesn't work as well.  Logos for support
typically need to be unobtrusive, work in black and white, and be scalable
down to a small size but still recognizable - like the MIDI logo itself.
