You're probably disappointed to get no replies yet. I had considered that Rene's change to the document template put the latter to rest. Any library wanting a logo must find/create one and specify it via the XML parameters Rene designated. However, upon consideration, I see that logo as useful for libraries related to Boost (but not intended for submission) or as a handy fallback for authors not wanting to create their own.

I do still like "Powered by."
