My original idea was to remove sevaral more old-style wallpapers and add a few more modern ones.
After discussions on this ML (mainly with E. and Alex), we decided to change only a few ones to prevent estranging the final users, at the same time without overpopulating the list of available wallpapers when tdebase and tdeartwork were installed (the list is already too long IMO). Further, we decided to make the removed wallpapers "manually" available in case it was necessary., that's why there is the 'obsolete' folder.

There is no problem in changing things again if required, as long as we all agree on a final version (either use the obsolete folder as it is now or just leave of the wallpapers available).
