Comment (by mark-k):

 @celloexpressions, it is not only a useless feature, its implementation
 will actually hurt more then help.

 Modern sites have minimum two logos, a desktop and a mobile. Now for a
 mobile you will want a retina version as well as a "plain" one. In
 addition the direction in which modern site design goes, you have two
 distinct logos for "above the fold" area and for the main menu (take a
 look at techcrunch), therefor there is no point talking about A logo, you
 need to be able to set several logos and when they should be used,
 otherwise themes will still need to add their own options for the
 additional logos which will just confuse users.

 Before smartphone became popular I would have agreed with the feature, but
 now it is just pointless.
