The judges had some debate about this - some were of the opinion that it
was important to encourage consistent use of the logo, and so if the
logo was to be used flat on t-shirts and other merchandise, it should
also be flat for the website. Others felt that it was more appropriate
to keep the gradient for web, and lose it for places where flat colour
was more appropriate.

In the end, a majority suggested one logo to rule them all, at least
during the initial period when the logo asserts itself, rather than
encouraging the appearance of variants.

This is certainly a discussion we could have again, but in the end the
decision to do one or the other is fairly arbitrary.
