Are you referring here to bug #408513?
lool was faster than me on this one.

I find myself wondering here what guarantee there is that someone else
doesn't later decide that the /new/ wallpaper is ugly, and request another
update for etch...
The ugliness was due some hand made cleanup by Fathi Boudra in the SVG
that went wrong, this isn't a contest thing. The swirl in 4.0.0 that
was white and weird, now fits again with the wallpaper as a whole, the
color scheme was reverted to what the artist that made the wallpaper
Anyway, please explain the reason for the undocumented changes above, and
I'll take a look at unblocking it.
I hope the issues are well explained.
