Hear, hear!

When people are looking for something to complain about in Scheme, the parentheses are the first thing they point to.  Racket is not about parentheses, so I'd prefer towards a logo that DOESN'T have any obvious parentheses (balanced or otherwise).  If we build an R from a lambda, the added bow should be sufficiently curvy that "parenthesis" isn't the first thing one thinks of.
