at the last moment we find the "default" wallpaper is not good enough as
a default, we can switch it with one of the 4.

I think this ticket review process would really help -- there are no
surprises for anyone. And if something falls on the floor for lack of
attention, then it's fair to simply let it do so. And having a
fallback means that there's no catastrophe, and no one's held hostage
to unreasonable expectations.
Hope we will get to talk more about it at FUDCon, but here is my latest
idea: run the new wallpaper system as an official feature for F12 (the
feature is not the wallpaper, but the process), this will help us get
better exposure (and maybe more contributors) and also make us more
strict with the deadlines.
