The kdebase-runtime repository is currently 260MB, and kdebase-workspace
is 300MB. Apparently it's because of wallpapers and icons, either in the 
current revision or in the past.

Removing wallpapers from kdebase-workspace would bring it down to 190MB 
(100MB less). I haven't yet tested kdebase-runtime.

What do you all think of removing wallpapers from these git repositories?
We could put them in a separate git repository, or even keep them in SVN.
