Redundant "widescreen" wallpaper in the package

Bug Description

The reverted package contains following images:
warty-final-ubuntu.png: 1600×1200, 1.6 MiB
warty-final-ws-ubuntu.png: 1600×1000, 1.3 MiB

The smaller one is simply a cropped version of the larger one.

The smaller one should be removed and /usr/share/gnome-background-properties/ubuntu-wallpapers.xml should be modified from
    <filename>/usr/share/backgrounds/warty-final-ubuntu.png</filename>
    <options>stretched</options>
to
    <filename>/usr/share/backgrounds/warty-final-ubuntu.png</filename>
    <options>zoom</options>

That makes Gnome automatically crop the image as needed to fit the screen's aspect ratio.

In addition to making the package smaller in size and removing the need for widescreen users to manually change the wallpaper, it also fixes the related bug #45385.
