A interesting idea but not one I like. A variation of the Fedora logo
would have the same protections as the logo itself and leads to the same
issues we are trying to avoid by suggesting the use of a mascot that
lends itself to artistic freedoms and creative uses. Keep the mascot
completely separate from the logo.
