Package: emacs21
Version: 21.1-7
Severity: wishlist

When I start my favorite editor, I get a lovely logo with the gnu               
shamelessly stolen from my favorite news/mail reader, and the word              
"Emacs" under it.  It's a nice comforting thing to see on a bleak,              
gray, rainy monday morning.                                                     
This monday morning, in my catatonic pre-tea state, I chanced to                
stare a bit longer than usual at the cheery graphic.  It was then               
that I noticed the drop shadow on the word "Emacs" indicates a                  
northeast light source, while the drop shadow on the gnu indicates a            
northwest light source.  This sort of mistake, while certainly                  
understandable for a lesser piece of software, does not reflect well            
on the larger character of the Emacs package.  In this hacker's                 
opinion, such a mistake should not be the first visual a new                    
potential Emacs acolyte encounters.  Rather, a crisp, professional,             
and correctly-lit logo should impress upon the newbie that they are             
now running software worthy of their respect and admiration, the                
extent to which any seasoned Emacs hacker can attest.                           
Thank you for your attention to this serious matter.
