The idea which came on IRC yesterday was we can make the package soon, 
using the 5 images we know are OK so the package is in early, before the 
freeze, and then update it later with the rest of the images.

One thing to take care of is our promise to the authors and license 
compliance, we offered "mention in the commit message for the package, 
mention in the package metadata".

Also, we have to investigate having an XML file to provide another part 
of the offer "attribution and licensing information will be included in 
the wallpaper chooser widget"

One single package, otherwise we go to insanity.

Hmmm... good call, how we market the feature? A first step is to 
announce it on blogs/Planet to raise awareness (I believe Emily is 
supposed to do this, as she assembled the wiki page).
For spins, I could see the package on Desktop but, for example, not 
necessarily on Security... I guess is the spin maintainer's call
