	Unfortunately, the X resource database can't contain background
XPMs (or icon XPMs), or allow someone to drag a directory onto the desktop
and have the "folder" reside in the desktop, or hold a directory tree
containing all of the user's "theme" files.  It could certainly point to
those items, which may be the way GNOME apps should handle their
configuration, but it doesn't give the apps a standard place to look for
that stuff in.
