I noticed that no one else addressed the proposal head-on, only
related matters. ;-)  To wit, questions:

* Do the Fedora/GNOME wallpapers remain as is, and the new wallpapers
  replace the current desktop-backgrounds SRPM content that usually
  goes into desktop-backgrounds-basic?  (Currently that is 6-7 images
  of stuff like the old ladybugs-on-a-leaf image.)  If so, I'm +1.

* Do tiles stay?  (Does anyone *use* those anymore?  Eww.)
