I'd like to polish a bit the status of the kdeartwork module. Right now it's 
just a dumping ground for all the stuff that we felt bad to just svn rm, and I

additional artwork shipped with KDE.

(proposed) plan of action:

- create extragear/kdeclassic, where all the old stuff can be put. This 
includes e.g. the old icon themes, the wallpapers, and all the stuff that just 
became obsolete or not good enough to compete with the new KDE 4 standards.

- populate kdeartwork with renewed and improved content, styles for KDE 4, 
more good wallpapers that we can't put in kdebase, maybe launch a little 
contest for styles-windecos (we're lacking good ones here).
Then, move some wallpapers from kdebase to kdeartwork (reducing the number in 
kdebase to 5) import additional colors of the cursor theme, and other similar 

Thoughts? How does the above sound?
