You want to take a look at:
- desktop-base (provides debian-related artwork and themes, only
  automatically applied for gnome at this point, background image and
  splashscreen only at this point)
- wishlist bug #348702 which has a patch to make the desktop-base stuff
  apply to XFCE and KDE
- desktop-profiles, provides a mechanism to add custom configuration sets
  for the different desktop environments. 
  Usefull keywords to find information on how to create the custom
  configurations are 'configuration sources' (GNOME/gconf), profiles (KDE)
  basedirs (freedesktop/XFCE), Choices (ROX), domains (GNUSTEP)

P.S. the debian-desktop or debian-custom lists are probably more on topic
     regarding this kind of thing

    format mails to a low priority folder (they're mainly spam)
