All suggestions will increase usability, and there hasn't been any
dissent on this list. Let's go ahead and implement them.

I've added Joao's mock-up.

A designer friend will send us some suggestions. For now, we should
clean up as much as possible (Joao mentioned cleaning out the grey
from the heads of the letters P) and make a tiny bit smaller so it
doesn't touch against the borders.

In general, I think the BETA is great where it is. I am suggesting to
move it to top right, so we get a little more space to move up the
rest of the page. If it looks funny, let's not do it.
