ATM we are patching xfdesktop to include
usr/share/backgrounds/default.png, but I think your idea is even better
because the way we do it currently sets the wallpaper but does not add
it to the list.

lxde-common and lxdm als use usr/share/backgrounds/default.png. Just
like slim and some others. This means we still need
usr/share/backgrounds/default.png and the desktop-backgrounds-compat
package.

I am not sure if we need
[release-name]-backgrounds-[desktop-environment] packages. I suggest to
      * do all of that in desktop-backgrounds-compat, it's just a few
        symlinks
      * build the desktop specific subpackages as part of
        desktop-backgrounds rather than [release-name]-backgrounds. If
        somebody has the packages of 2 different releases installed, the
        subpackages will collide.

What do you think?

Christoph
