somewhat confused.  xfdesktop 4.0.x has options for tiled, scaled, and 
centered, i believe.  xfdesktop CVS has tiled, centered, scaled, 
stretched, and auto.  auto chooses between tiled and scaled based on the 
image size.  it occurs to me that the 4.0.x 'scaled' behaviour may 
actually be 'stretched' as you say.
