I think instantl apply is fine for the background selector, as long as a
"thinking cursor" is displayed and the switch is non-blocking. Changing
backgrounds on my modestly powered machine only takes a second or so; I
don't think that's a real issue. Presumably the file selector will also
have thumbnails, so they will know what the image they are selecting is.

Probably, but it would be fine to change it as soon as they "dropped"
the slider.
