This is correct.  Patrick has the final say on Rakudo's logo.

Yes, I went out of my way to indicate that my mind was still open
(a little).  However, if you will allow an old geezer to be a wee bit
testy, I would also like to make it clear that I'm a just a little
tired of these "rounds"; more importantly, that I've been mulling
over this particular issue for many years.  I didn't just come up
with that list of requirements off the cuff.  I'm old enough to have
lots of stuff on my cuff as well.

Also, it's probably mere hubris, but I already consider myself to be a
"professional designer".  I know how to take into account the various
factors that a professional designer would take into account when
designing yet another highly original logo that somehow ends up looking
just like every other logo out there.  You'll notice that "sterility"
is not on my list of requirements.  It was a deliberate omission.

So let me summarize the requirements into a meta-requirement:

    The new logo must make Larry at least as happy as Camelia does.

That is the extent to which my mind is still open...  :-)
