Excellent -- I'm trying those out right now.

Seeing the backgrounds from the main package in action, I have one
piece of feedback -- the mosaic-squares background might benefit from
being angled in some fashion.  Perhaps this could be some perspective,
as if the print of squares was on a wall angling away from the viewer
at the top.  That would prevent the squares from making it a little
more difficult to see icons on the desktop.  Hope this is helpful.
