Just to clarify - the FAILSAFE versions were intended to be 'less
drastic' adaptations of the current designs so that they were more
acceptable if the other designs weren't popular - kind of a fallback,
not a different set of art for when the user is in failsafe mode,
though that is probably a good idea.
The failsafe GDM is very similar to the Dapper GDM - which is why it
is considered 'Failsafe' - it uses the Dapper logo and the 'glow'
effect around it, with no glossiness :)
Hope that clears things up,
