Nodoka is included in even more distros and a desktop theme (like Solar) 
is too volatile and with little use beyond Fedora - other distros can 
use the wallpaper, but they have little use of Anaconda splashes and 
such (note that we keep the branding low on those images so they *can* 
be used by other distros) .
