The current license isn't very friendly to commercial entities.  As it
stands, we are unable to use the logo in our signage, which would
be a shame.  We also couldn't put it into bayou since the license would
be incompatible with the GPL.

Can we consider CC-by-nd, please, to allow commercial reuse?

And why is CC-by-sa out of the question?   I think that the many
variations of the Linux penguin has only served to enforce the 
brand, not dilute it.
