For the wallpaper specification we need to define the colors used in the
panel and windows. These should be evaluated in light of the intended
message (lightness, performance).

Icons likely to appear on the desktop need to be identified.

Note that creating/choosing the wallpaper first, to then adjust the
panel and window colors is a valid approach, too.

The question is, can you change those colors and how late in the game
can you do so, then?
