Awesome, great to have someone tackling this. :-)

Nitpick: A lighter grey for the 'gnome'? The black is a bit jarring. The
background colour is great, but perhaps a bit rainy-day? Dunno, I like it
better than the current one anyway.

One thing you might want to work on (if it interests you), in addition to
getting a sweet default, is a set of slick, preferably non-people-photo and
non-logo backgrounds to ship with gnome-desktop by default (or whatever we
decide is a sensible module for them).

Sun shipped a bunch of interesting backgrounds with their 2.0 release for
Solaris -> perhaps we should find out if they're Free for use with GNOME?
