not less, but different perhaps. the wallpapers are really not related to the 
plasma workspace devel at all, however, and would probably be better off in 
their own repository as a result. it's an art esign thing, not a code thing. 

there is only a runtime dependency on _one_ wallpaper: the default. that 
dependency is actually defined by the theme, and the default theme actually 
resides in kde-runtime.

we do need to decide how to deal with the wallpapers, but i don't think 
keeping them in kde-workspace is a good answer. it does increaese the size 
considerably for something that is really a different kind of beast.

i am seriously considering proposing shipping just one wallpaper as part of an 
artwork package and making the rest of them available via synchrotron.
