That can be done in the debian-edu layer. Something similar is how kde configuration is done in debian edu and I don't like it (in this case it's still worse as it modifies an ini file in /etc, maybe KDE doesn't allow stacking configurations, I don't know) Anyway, technically, it seems clear how to do it. My concern is mainly a question of Debian Edu policy: is it logical to think that who installs debian-edu-artwork wants to have that artwork for all the new users or only for those who are teachers or students?
