There has been some discussion on the server-devel list of making a
logo for the XS.  Perhaps the symbol for a connected school server
should match that logo (and a simple mesh should look different -- for
me at least this would save, well, a minute per week).

The thread starts and restarts at:

This might also focus the minds of prospective designers: rather than
struggling to incorporate the letters X and S, try to make your logo
look like a school.
