I have used Inkscape to vectorize before. It is awesome! But if we are going
to make these scalable, then I suspect there are better starting points than
the web version of the boost logo that I had at hand. Maybe even a vector
based original. Even Inkscape has limitations.

Any opinion on the various font sizes? On my screen the smallest become fairly
blurry, but seems to still provide fair readable for randomly selected
bypassing testers. As it is a lot of anti-aliasing needed I am eager for
opinions on how it is to read and if the message is too toned downed or too
highlighted in the various logo variants?
