How about this:

1. We set the background to a particular image (~/.desktop.png)
2. We have a background application that connects to a particular site
and keeps pulling down new images from there and then replaces this
pre-defined image?

Wouldn't the above work? Talking about RSS feeds for images, I am not
sure there are sites out there that do this.

Just some thoughts.
