Just did a search through the contents of tde-tdeartwork and found a
few more images that I thought might be worth changing.  These are
(without the file type):

kfs_kde (might want a totally new mascot character /thing)  I can make
a mascot/character if so desired)

However, I do realize that by changing a subset of icons and imagery I
would have to force myself to stay within their style and feel.  Where
as a completely new set (yes more work) could be desired more.  I also
realize that only some of the art that might be desired to be replaced
is within tde-tdeartwork.
