Thanks for the feedback. I've made two versions[1][2] with subtle
rounded edges, although now it becomes evident that I have no design
skills. :)

I tried giving them varying thicknesses, but I couldn't get anything to
look quite right. Everybody is welcome to hack it; I've uploaded a PSD
[3] (Photoshop src file); unfortunately, I don't have Illustrator and
Inkscape is failing to compile. It might be easier for people to hack if
somebody could convert this to an Inkscape file. :-/

I like that too; not sure what to do for Yi, though.

Anybody mind if I add these to the wiki, too? I feel like I'm taking up
tons of space, there.
