Everyone knows that Migel likes monkeys.  It is to be expected that Mono's
logo will be a monkey.

I actually like Ximian naming everything after a monkey (Ximan, mono,
bonobo).  I think it's cute.  Sort of a personal touch.

If people don't like this particular monkey, mabye we could use a
*different* monkey?
