Actually, from what I could see release-over-release, this time around
the Artwork team has done its best job ever of meeting a self-imposed
schedule, including having a theme iterated during the early part of
the cycle, producing promo Alpha and Beta banners for the web site,
soliciting backgrounds, and getting one included in the Beta release.

I think this team's doing a spectacular job.  Nevertheless, more hands
are good, and I encourage you to get involved as much as you can!
