I don't remember the discussion, so I may have just overlooked this part
of it.  I would like to keep the wallpapers available instead of using the
obsolete folder.

A better long-term solution would be to borrow the tree interface idea
from the screensaver selection dialog.  That way the wallpapers could be
generally categorized, e.g. "Legacy", "Modern", "Simple", "Nature", etc.
