the funny effects you talk about is the missing sulphur stone in some of
the images, or is it intentional? However, opening the affected SVGs in
inkscape results in correct image, so exporting to PNG should work OK.

Next, it is a real huge set of wallpapers and unless we could do some
kind of diffs between the wallpapers it is far to much for being default
wallpaper set (at least for Live CDs), IMHO.

I also noticed the PNGs included are not sharp. How did you get them
from the SVGs? Direct export from SVG (in inkscape) does not show this
rather low quality rendering.

And now to the general idea. I am not opposed to the idea itself, also
representing Sunday as 0 is interesting, since it is start of the week
for some countries, while Monday (in your counting number 1) in another
ones :) But, I don't like very much how it is implemented. When I looked
at thumbnails (in nautilus) at first I thought that the circles are part
of the flame (you know, when part of a flame separates from the rest and
flow upwards) which I thought was great idea, but actually seeing that
it is more or less plain circles sort of disappointed me.

Just my 2 cents,
