My english is so poor, I didn't know this funny expression.
What's so strange ? having icons anywhere, or the look of my
desktop ? ;-)

The last time I used icons on desktop was with Xfce 3.8.16+Rox pinboard.
I don't remember who talked about a hidden icons area you could open
by moving your pointer on the top left corner of the desktop, apwal is
very close to that.

ps: french pronunciation of apwal is the same than the french expression
"a poil" which means "naked", joke of the french author I guess.
