I tend to agree - svg seems like the natural fit for web, while WebGL
is cool-but-too-heavy for a logo. Cool to have a demo page with it,
but I don't know if it should be in the logo on every page, esp given
WebGL's propensity to crash things.

- might want to do it the CSS way to avoid the onmouseover/etc stuff,
which IME is somewhat imperfect.
