Perhaps logo is the wrong word. The oroginal dunedesign figure was
(what the name suggests) a sketch of design/structure of dune. It
was never indended as a "which features does dune provide" map. But it
is also more than just a logo.

To give you an idea... here are other pictures of other projects,
roughly sketching how different libs/software-layers interact:

I'm very much against a figure which is "feature-complete".
