That's a good idea! i think this can be done easely with just a python
or even shell script.
And how would Nautilus handle this? do you need to notify nautilus
that the background is changed? or is nautilus checking the background
all the time to see if it's existing? If the last one is the case than
rewriting the "desktop.png" file will work just fine.

I'm not sure if this is a good solution for the topic starter... it
seems like he wants to do something different than this.
