Currently to do this cleanly for GNOME at least, we need GNOME 2.2.  I
plan to make the default background the one from desktop-base.  I'm
hoping Chris Cheney will get around to doing this for KDE soon too.

Maybe what we could do is have a symlink in desktop-base which points to
the default background.  That way if you DeMuDi people want a different
background, it would be a relatively simple matter of creating your own
desktop-base package with that symlink changed.

Make sense?
