 $ editor /etc/X11/WindowMaker/background.menu
 Include /usr/local/share/KidsPlayground/Backgrounds in the paths used
 for backgrounds.  (or change the definition of LOCAL_BACKGROUND_DIR)
 $ mkdir -p /usr/local/share/KidsPlayground/Backgrounds
 $ chown :kids /usr/local/share/KidsPlayground/Backgrounds
 $ chmod g+rwxs /usr/local/share/KidsPlayground/Backgrounds

 The tricky part is getting the kids to understand that they have to
 download the backgrounds to the special directory, which shouldn't be
 hard as they already have to understand they have to put the
 backgrounds in some particular place.

 Same for themes.

 I'd be pleased to change stuff or provide hooks as needed.
