We should keep the overall number of wallpapers in tde-base the same, IMNSHO,
but replace some of the existing static images with something more widescreen-friendly.
The condemned images can be moved to tde-artwork as an alternative to deletion.

Also, can anyone confirm whether or not the "Get New Wallpapers" button in
the Control Center works in the latest build (that is, whether it actually produces
a list of new wallpapers rather than a blank page)?  If not, we need to figure out how
to fix it (and its cousins for icons, etc.). *claims* to still be serving 
"Get Hot New Stuff" feeds, which I think is the mechanism being used.
