On my machine, the penguin scrolls off very fast, so I like the older
patch more, that displays the penguin in the upper right corner of the
screen until you switch it off via a write to '/proc/penguin' (didn't
someone want to put the 'penguin-rating' in there?). But this one flickers
as the screen is scrolled, so maybe one could patch the console?
