I'm quite happy with carrying a patch in the ubuntu packages, and I'm
sure it would be no problem for debian either. Ubuntu has its logo on
the GNOME panel with the Applications menu, so seems equivalent to

specific logo by default (or perhaps a Sugar Labs logo?) with each
distro including OLPC patching in their desired logo. That would
ensure there is a well documented method to do the patch.
