another good idea - you're just full of them this weekend, mmm? ^_^  
let's see...  i suppose probably the easiest way that doesn't introduce 
new UI elements is to preselect the current backdrop when you click the 
'edit list' button.  i like that because it's simple, but i don't like 
it because it's non-obvious: for a new user, it may not be readily 
apparent that a particular item is selected by default.  or, conversely, 
they may look for this particular feature, and not notice that it's 
actually there.

but, it's simple and elegant, so i'm going to go ahead and implement 
it.  if anyone can think of something more clever, feel free to speak up.
