Hm; I wouldn't think of these as slogans, per se, but more of a 
tongue-in-cheek way of saying that, while the project is serious, we 
don't take ourselves *too* seriously.  Stuff that you couldn't do on a 
stuffy corporate site.

(Which may or may not be the desired/a desirable message to send, but 
I'll leave that for others to debate.)

Grah.  Why didn't they invent an HTML tag which says, "Make this text 
block a comfortable and readable width given the user's screen 
constraints"?  Yeah, yeah, semantics, not layout, or whatever the excuse 
is; just hand me a nice, crisp printout on A4 or letter paper. :-)
