I am actually of the opinion that the window manager should not set the
background at all.

If you run any sort of desktop environment, then it will be setting your
desktop for you.

And if not, then you are probly an 'advanced' enough user to set your own
desktop with one of the many tools out there for such a purpose (wmsetbg,
esetroot, qiv, xv, etc). I don't wish to rewrite any/all of these tools, and
the old bsetbg approach was hell to use and support. So I have chosen to
leave that outside of the domain of Openbox's control.
