    Only if it has been *properly* aged in a burnt oak barrel.   ;-)

    I like that. I also like the black and white alternating pentacle on 
the edge of the seal, it is distinctive symbol.

   How about combining idea's, as long as they still work at the icon 

    The flask (Bota) has an outline that conforms with many of the PHI 
curves, such as the nautilus,
  that trademark the Unix philosophy... (debian logo, the snail 
shell.... etc.)

   So does the pentacle, obviously. (Although, not -curves-...)

   The bota flask, with the alternating black and white pentacle, on the 
      with the Key superimposed over the pentacle... gives one an excuse
     to make the key "Golden", as well.... (this is rather simple)

   Or, the Golden key about to be inserted into a lock, the keyhole is 
located in
  the center of an alternating pentacle, perhaps in the interior 
   With a golden or red  capital "I", as the keyhole.... but the lock 
  describing the symbol PHI, using the I (the keyhole) as the center
  I of the phi symbol. (The outline of the lock forming the oblong O 
around the I)
  (this, a little more complex...)

Another .02c, dreams are cheap. :-)
