Well... my gut reaction is that's still pretty shaky territory. It would 
probably be best to hold off on using anything but a 'vanilla' Fedora logo until 
a Fedora brand book comes out. Probably the most authoritative answer will come 
when you hear back from the logo at fedoraproject.org people. :)

Do you have any alternate design ideas in mind? E.g., maybe have the fedora 'F' 
logo, and then have stylized b's next to it, but not inside the Fedora speech

Always appreciated. :)
