Considering that gfxboot and plymouth are the same, but kdm, (gdm?),
ksplash and backgrounds are different, I feel that some unification is
required as the generally theme seems slightly fractured. So maybe
while we're sorting out the background and whatnot we fix that too?

I really like the dark image image and the inverted one, however, I
thinks that that is too dark.
Was there ever a decision made about the colour scheme that we should
base things on? If not, how does something purple sound, as I don't
know of a purple Linux distro, if not, Mdv have moved away from blue
so we could take that.
