Actually, I was just teasing Shriram to get back at him for calling mine 
ugly. Either that, or I was making a subtle philosophical point about 
the rise and fall of fashions (note: backported explanation).

Wait... "shiny nineties look"? :p

Yeah, I wasn't too focused on making the lambda look good - I was all 
about the shiny. I also didn't know there was an SVG already.

It was annoying to extract the lambda from the SVG. (I had to play some 
CSG ops + simplification games because the lambda is made of negative 
space.) I've attached the extracted lambda for anyone who wants it.

We have the last logo designer's blessing! Full steam ahead! :)
