Sounds like a cool idea to me.  It would be nice if they could somehow
be made Xfce-ish, maybe by integrating the mouse somewhere.  Or maybe
not: I know when I find random backdrops, it kinda annoys me if there's
some branded portion to it that I don't care about.

So... which ones go in, and which don't?  I'd rather not put too many of
them in since that'll increase the tarball size by quite a bit.  Or
maybe just include a single default backdrop with xfdesktop, and create
an xfce4-desktop-backgrounds package?  Though I know we've been trying
to decrease the number of packages, not increase...
