Hmm, I don't seem to think it is crack.  Of course I need to ask Brian
and Seth about this since they are the UI experts but adding a default
background is easy to do for any folder in Nautilus.  This is similar to
how mac used to give folder directions.  They used to have icons with
text and an arrow pointing to a file that would say, "Drag this file to
your system folder to install".  Thanks for the suggestion.
