I see what you're getting at there, but obviously if chosen the logo
would be seen by people who're unaware of your explanation of the
analogy, and so there's a risk they'd see a more literal link with a
particular political movement.

That could cause some awkwardness in getting Perl 6 accepted by those
with different political persuasions.  Perl 6 has no political views
(well, outside the narrow field of programming language design, which
isn't considered a field of politics by most major parties), so it
wouldn't be beneficial to give the perception of any poliical links,
even inadvertently.
