Just because you don't like or understand something it doesn't make it
stupid does it?
If you run a session manager (gnome-session) and (in gconf-editor) tell
nautilus not to 'show_desktop' and uncheck 'add_to_session' (so
basically kill nautilus) but for gnome to 'draw_background' for you,
then voila a changable background, which you can set in the control
center or, if you are still a luddite, setting a gconf key on the
command line, isn't that nice? Doesn't it sound like a job a
session-manger should do rather than the window-manager?
