looking at it again, it IS mangled: the cubes are to the right of the type,

and in incorrect proportions (ams height).

IMO it's important that we enforce (or at least evangelize) the respect
for the official logos, we should not encourage modifications of it.

it's the most important element of our branding, and it should remain
consistent everywhere. thjis makes me think of the need for an article
describing the logo in full details, showing proportions, placement of
elements, font, colors....
