There is also an Exhibit 2: bg.sh, a little shell script that someone put on 
this list a while back.  It is probably simpler than bgmenu.rb, but it works.  
Also it allows you to specify a configuration file, so a `bg.sh load` in your 
.xinitrc loads the last background you set.  It also uses bsetbg, but could 
be easily modified to support other programs.  And once it's set up and 
working it does a great job.

Hope you find a good solution.
