#213: WordPress.org favicon needs some Retina love.

 Current favicon looks like this: https://cloudup.com/cyCWGFdwP8C (compared
 to other sites that do use retina-friendly ones)

 [http://daringfireball.net/2013/01/retina_favicons John Gruber recommends]
 [http://www.kodlian.com/apps Icon Slate] for generating them with cross-
 browser compatability, but I've heard some good reports about just using
 the html5 tool on [http://xiconeditor.com/]

 Alternately, we may be able to just serve it up as a 32px square png file,
 I'm not 100% certain on the browser compatability though.

 Does anyone know where a higher-res version would be?  Or should I tool
 around a bit to try and recreate it from scratch?  Also, when dealing with
 tiny favicons, would it be wiser to use the simplified logo?
