Not quite, Joss doesn't want icon/theme changes but is open to a desktop
background in http://lists.debian.org/debian-desktop/2011/10/msg00022.html

I personally feel sticking with upstream desktop branding, possibly
lightly altered to add a Debian logo in the login or desktop background
is the right choice.

tasksel only pulls in desktop-base, it does not itself have
anything to do with the theme.

If we're removing spacefun then d-i can revert to the old "klowner" boot
logo, possibly updated in some way for wheezy, but the current one will
work ok. Reverting abbc21a955dc2f9b2fc134e796ef0bfcf4c3a2d2 in
rootskel-gtk will despacefun the graphical installer. 

However, it's good to have visual consistency between the d-i and
debian-live and grub boot graphics, so I'd like to get a consensus
about how wheezy should look on boot before making too many changes.
