Ok that’s a good idea but it still leaves some questions open:

A) There will be plenty of places where to define a custom logo. We need to 
list all the use cases that exist and make sure there’s only 1 way for each use 
case as otherwise it’s confusing. It seems oferly complex to me ATM and this 
will make it even more complex.

B) We need to decide technically where a default logo is stored. Perm dir 
somewhere? In a wiki page as an attachment and if so which page? (what are the 
pros and cons of each).

For A) let me try to list use cases:

UC1: I want to define a default logo so that when I create a new wiki, this 
logo is used by default
UC2: I want to be able to define a custom logo for a given subwiki.
UC3: I want to be able to define a custom logo for a page + its children
UC4: I want to be able to define a custom logo for a single page

UC1: Default logo in admin UI
UC2: Unfortunately there are 2 solutions: Set a logo in the wiki skin or set a 
logo in the current wiki color theme. Ideally we should pick one.
UC3: AFAIK it’s not possible. We can set a logo in the space skin or set a logo 
in the space color theme. But we can have a logo that will be used for 
children. In addition there are also 2 solutions same as UC2
UC4: I don’t think it works right now. From a tech POV I think you can add a 
XWikiSkins xobject to a page but then you’ll get the associated sheet 
displayed. I don’t know about Color Theme.

So questions to answer:

* How do we implement UC3?
* How do we implement UC4?
* Should we provide a single way for UC2 instead of 2?
* Do we have a use case for being able to set the logo in the skin that 
couldn’t be done in the color theme (or vice-versa)? Since the skin can 
redefine the full vm templates it will always be able to force a logo but maybe 
we shouldn’t make it a special feature of the skin and deprecate it/hide it. 
The rationale could be that we decide to move the logo feature to the CT.

For B) I think as an attachment would be better (you get the benefits of pages: 
history, rollback, simpler to change, etc).
