Sourcemap icon


On a light hearted topic, is there a consensus on an icon that should be used to symbolize sourcemaps? Today in the IE11 F12 developer tools we have a button that is used to toggle sourcemaps on and off for a given file for which we needed to make up an icon for so we choose:

That icon is completely arbitrary and we choose it simply because we couldn't think of a better alternative (in the time available).

Anyway, it would be interesting to know if there are any thoughts for an icon that could be used that developers could recognize (with time).
