Subversion Logo

I remember a while ago there was a discussion about the need for a
Subversion logo and icon. As I recall, the Chinese character icon that was
decided upon was denounced, but left in to act as a placeholder for the
time being.

Well, I don't have a replacement to offer but I did make a discovery I
thought was interesting: if you do a search on Subversion in Google images
you get a lot of subversive material images, which probably won't work very
well, but you also get a picture of a unique-looking submarine called
"Subversion" which took part in the First International Submarine Race.

You can see the sub here
http://www.tntech.edu/www/life/orgs/sub/races/1stISR/subversion1a3.gif and
the (lack of) specs for it here
http://www.tntech.edu/www/life/orgs/sub/races/1stISR/subversion1.html.
About the only thing they appear to know about it is that it was built by
California Polytechnic, I'm guessing by their Human Powered Submarine Project.

I think that some simplified image of this sub or something similar would
make an interesting logo/icon. And if someone knows anything about this sub
or knows someone who might (6 degrees and all that), perhaps we could even
get an image from the original design.

Just a thought.
