That sounds interesting enough to launch it to discussion.

Now personally I thing we should give a step forward from the theme from
Fedora 8 and not re-used and improve, cause people don't see all the
work they just look at the first windows and get, sometimes, the last
impression they will alway get from the art in the release "it was the
same last time". Fedora is well known for being fast paced and
innovative so if we want to fallow that spirit I thing we should move

I would love to see a theme with something that was somewath alive, the
theme could be something like "breath", "keep going" or "live", I'll
work a bit in "breath" when I have time, if anyone likes any idea feel
free to take it and develop it.
