OTHER COMMENTS: To quote Johan Bilien: "There is no API for setting the
background from an external process, feel free to fill a feature request in
bugzilla."  Thus I am requesting a command line interface (dbus-send?) method
of setting the user's background image (wallpaper).

I'd say this enhancement would lead to a number of creative uses, making people
more delighted with their tablets, simple ("useless," "nonproductive") though
the feature may be.

This is now roadmapped for Harmattan.

Feel free to get into details of what would you expect this API to provide.
