Having the word "LLVM" appear explicitly in the logo would be useful.   
For example, not many people can relate the coffee cup logo to Java  
but everyone recognizes the name, Java.  The text makes a difference.   
I don't think it matters exactly what version we use as long as the  
name appears in text, at least in the medium size and larger logos.   
We could drop it in the smallest ones since reasonable-sized text may  
be unreadable.
