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
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.
