Great work on the logo SVG! There are minor differences (the angle or
something), but I do not think they matter.

By the way, make sure you have a fallback PNG for non modern desktop and
mobile browsers (that goes for every SVG on the site for now)...

The logo of 404.html uses a bad fallback -
background: #f9f7f3 url(skins/webplatform/images/logo.png);
background: hsl(40,29%,96%) url(skins/webplatform/images/logo.svg);
It is not good enough for Android 2.3, I believe, because Android earlier
than 3 does not support SVG, but does support the HSL color format.
We should think of other ways.
Or drop official support for Android 2.3, if we support mobile at all.
