I am well aware of the source of the name and that it means monkey in 
spanish.  My apologies, I forgot to add that to my comment.  Maybe I am 
just not too thrilled by a monkey that looks more like a boxing glove on 
an extended hand (no offence to the creators).  Just my 2, thinking out 
loud.

Ummm.  Do you know where the project got its name?  It's pronounced
moe-noe, not mah-no.  Mono is Spanish for 'monkey.'  Therefore, I think
a monkey is MORE than appropriate.  Besides which, monkeys rock.  

The logo doesn't even come close to the look or feel of Ximian's logo. 
The only similarity is that there's a monkey on each.

If it comes to a vote, I'm pro-monkey.  (although I'm far from
unbiased... see www.fatnsoft.com for more info)
