In KDE 3.4rc, Kdesktop uses knewstuff to download wallpapers from You click 'get new wallpapers' and a dialog box is shown where 
you can sort the wallpaper by most popular and it will download them to your 
$KDEHOME/share/wallpaper folder for you. Perhaps we'll see more of this in 
other KDE applications to download arch/os independent files like icons and 
colour schemes? :)
