Way cool! Brings me back to windows-95 and desktop-plus in one of its later 
incarnations :-) Based on hooks and hacks, this did not make it to later 
windows versions but was fun while it lasted.

So I tried this here. Zooming back in may or may not be evident or appear in 
the right place while playing with this. Thought I lost my first desktop but 
somehow got it back.

OK, the UI could be improved. Setting wallpaper images takes too many steps 
and the caching of the images is not so stable (as I said, the extra step 
should not be needed at all).

Now: I want to copy some icons and move some icons to another desktop. HOW?
