Or we can restart the counter, change the project name, whatever... 
remember how RHL morphed into Fedora when it was to hit the magic number.

There was a work-in-progress about that: but as you can 
see, it was about published Artwork, not unpublished (as there may be a 
reason why some graphics were not published).

I think that would be a major blow to the Art Team, like lack of 
confidence in their/our skills.

Such photos do not make for a good wallpaper on which one would stare 
all day long. And we need an assortment of additional graphics (banners, 
splashes) to match.
