Raspbian Icons etc

Are there any plans to allow the default icons to be changed/replaced/selectable for things like the trash can, drives, file manager etc ? Also I take it if I use a background picture, then the memory to hold that is coming from the memory allocation for graphics ? or is it eating into system memory ?

Hmm Case with HDD

Wouldn't a case that also incluse room for a 2.5 Laptop HDD be useful, with an interface the HDD could be converted to USB and plugged in.

Actually would would be useful is a case that also housed a USB hub..
