Well, just to avoid any misplaced blame, I may be the one that is
misguided (I didn't think the pen looked like a "real" fountain pen, or
at least a real "classy" fountain pen). But, I don't have a classier
(expensive?) pen to substitute for it. I do think the image would look
better if more of it was in focus, but (IMHO) we can certainly use the
splash screen as is, and if a better fountain pen image is ever found,
it can be substituted.

Well, it's good to have some skills rather than none at all. ;-)
