I don't know that I consider Rakudo Perl to be forever tied to Parrot.
If we come up with other backends, I'd still consider the result
"Rakudo"; similar to how "Pugs" referred to all of the various backends
available to it and not just the Haskell backend.

So from that perspective, I don't know that the Rakudo logo ought
to be strongly tied to Parrot, any more than we tie the Parrot logo
to the various GNU tools used to build it.
