That's funny, when I saw your logo yesterday in google images I didn't
see the 1 and 2 but rather thought it was showing a lambda for some

Personally, I've always been curious to unravel the elliptical
construction hidden in that grey area surrounding R.  That'd be a nice
side-effect of having a 3D model in povray (*); we could rotate it and
see the other side. Sadly I don't have the skill. I wonder if RGL or
Blender could make this easier yet still reproducible.
