Great to have that functionality in Nautilus!
now i'm wondering if something like this could be implemented for GDM
as well..?? the GDM background for Fedora 8 is a .png image with a
size of: 2560 x 1600 and having that auto adjusting to the user
display size would be wonderful!

or perhaps SVG support in GDM (couldn't both options in gdm's bugzilla)?
