Sounds like a good idea. I think we need to aim as high as required by 
gdm (128x128?) as photos will scale down properly, but not up without 
things looking bad. The hope is that people will replace these with a 
picture of themselves, their dog or some random funny picture they found 
on the internet when personalizing their system.
