Hmm, I'm not sure I agree -- I think the main strength of the original  
logo is that it's simple, both in terms of all lines being the same  
width, and in terms of having only two colours used.  It means it can  
be adapted to all sorts of different colour sets (as it is on  

Perhaps the correct thing to do here is to make a black/gold version  
for the haskell platform?

I do agree with the earlier comment that the font for the +/- needs to  
be more bold, if I'd had a vector version, I would have done that.
