I haven't even looked at any of the XFCE code, so please excuse me if
this is way off-base, but a potential solution occured to me that you
might think about.
Is it possible to place some sort of "hook" into the settings manager
mechanism such that when xfdesktop requests a background image, the
settings manager selects (and remembers, at least for the duration of
the running instance) a random image? This would require the ability
for the settings manager (or would it be xfce-mcs-manager?) to be able
to calculate a response to a read request from an app rather than
returning a static value.
Just an idea...
