I downloaded this package and looked at the pictures.

Firstly, I have no objection to such a package.  It's only 2.6 MB, and
even if it "opens the floodgates" to having a corresponding package
for every other city in the world, I wouldn't mind.

However, the problem is that the pictures in this particular package
are *rubbish*.  (In some cases, they are pictures *of* rubbish!)
Don't take my word for it, take a look for yourselves:


So I feel unfortunately this is a bad case.  Superb, high-quality
pictures from cities around the world would make a fantastic
screensaver ...
