I understand your disappointment but there is nothing we can do.
It's simply to late. We should appreciate, that Joy probably satisfies
most users (more than Spacefun probably did).

I think you misunderstood something.
Most Login Managers (if not all) give the possibility, to center an
over-sized image, and crop it symmetrically. 
Joy (and also Roj) work well with with this process.
Joy is even a more prefect candidate, since it's in SVG format and has
nothing in the edges that could be cropped off.

There won't be problems, see above.
