      Boring or not, those graphics have the merit of being "consistent" with
      Windows installers for various programs. I think they are acceptable.

      If we want to design a specific image for Vim, IMHO it would have to
      - be based on the Vim "V" or "Vim" logo
      - not be so trendy that next year it'd be out of fashion
      - not make the text hard to read, not even for colour-blind people.
      The latter probably implies either (a) text outside the image, or (b)
      text inside the image, but on a relatively flat-coloured part of it, and
      in contrasting tones (white text on dark BG, black text on light BG, etc.).

      Best regards,
