Seems big enough to me.
Best to just provide the SVG image as well incase someone wants to
render a even bigger image.

Hi

Perhaps that's something the fedora people should put on the todo list
(for Fedora 10)?
When this is made you never have to include png/jpeg or even multiple
wallpapers of the same image.. you just render the wallpaper for the
screen size on firstboot and your done.

That's a big advantage! and saves some space as well (with current
wallpapers i guess it could save about 30MB?)
