For the desktop spin I don't think we want to continue making new
versions of these each release.  Especially now that we have a
plymouth screen that isn't rethemed every release I think we can just
make one and reuse it from now on.  Or maybe we don't need some of
these at all.

We don't need this for the desktop spin.

Not used in the desktop spin.

Not relevant to the desktop spin.

I still think, for now, it makes sense to create a new desktop
background for each release.  But it would be great if we can
implement Window 7 style slideshows as well.  Also, I'm still very
skeptical about the value of relying on the internal code name for the
release to determine the visual design of the wallpaper.
