I've raised the question, since on one hand I have to fully agree with
you. On the other hand, examples from different applications could
catch a larger audience. Unfortunately, there have been not that many
contributions so far. In fact, only L. Nobre G. contributed two figures
and a third is from me. I didn't tell more in my other mail to keep
your answers unbiased. Well, there have not been many replies to the
whole subject at all.
I don't want to push any title graphic into the v1.0 release. If we do
not have the right thing we can as well wait with that. In this regard,
I want to ask two new questions:
Do you think mpman should have title graphics?
Do any of the figures currently available should make it in to v1.0? Or
should we wait?

"Evacuation" has some shading and transparency could be added to "gnupost".

Do you have an URL? I couldn't find anything searching for "syracuse
reimann" or "syracuse riemann".
