Can you provide an example of how this might look in an actual set of
wallpapers? would the defaults be a single set or multiple sets.
The Fedora Design team has created wallpapers for each release, and I
don't think that should change. This wallpaper is key when it comes to
marketing, as most reviewers use the background when reviewing, so
having a new wallpaper for each release is a good thing here, and helps
define the workstation flavor.
