Hi Robert,

Sorry, but I don't understand why you wan't a new image. 
Why aren't you using the /boot/grub/splashimages/debian-moreblue-swirl.xpm.gz (package grub-splashimages) ?
It's like the same no ?

Another question is why not installing it in /boot/grub/splashimages ?
Installing you're image in /usr is quite problematic when using grub

E.g.: I'm using lvm for my /usr partition... So grub can't get the files
on it :-/

I'm really not sure that you're patch should be against desktop-base....
Grub could not be installed so why adding it there ? why not in
grub-splashimages ?
