But not by default.  KControl is there by default.  One of the 
strengths of Debian is the fact that there is so much software you 
can install if you want.  There is even a compiz-core-trinity 
package, and a lot of others to go with it, for those who like bling.

I stand outvoted.  I feel constantly threatened by this "modern" bloat 
and bling, which Alexandre seems to love and to want to impose. And I 
still do not accept that KDE4 is "more intelligent" than TDE in any 
way that I can think of. 

If we get those new wallpapers, can we delete some others, rather than 
increase the number? Maybe delete twice as many as we add?  I would 
be in favour then!  There is always the "get new wallpapers" button.  
I agree that most of the wallpapers that are there by default, are 
pretty awful.
