Because the complete list of slogans can easily grow more that 100 (or
200) it will be hard for a slogan to gain the majority.
Probably the vote itsleft is better to be divided on two phases:
First phase is to vote for "slogan theme" (for example "legend theme",
"trust theme", "concrete features theme" and so on)
Then after we have a theme selected we can start on voting about
concrete slogan (for example "Firebird: Legend reborn", ... or
"Firebird: trustworthy solution", ... or "Firebird: The Best Open
Source RDBMS", ...)
