Given our current policy of using wallpaper as the base for other art
(Bootsplash, application splashes, etc) you're asking for a great deal
of work from anyone who's going to take up this task.

FWIW, I, for one, would like to see this change. The insistence on
trying to match the grub message, bootsplash & wallpaper doesn't pay
off, as the limited graphic formats in the boot process always end up
making muddy, ugly messes of otherwise acceptable gradients.

As far as the application splashes go, I make a point of installing the
upstream versions (as the suse-specific ones don't blend in once you
start to customize your desktop).

I would much rather see some effort put into a simple, clean, reusable
grub message & bootsplash that doesn't look god-awful at 16-bits, and a
nice collection of desktop wallpapers. ( I really don't care if the
default wallpaper matches the bootsplash or not, but I would care to
have a few more choices right out of the gate. )
