It may make more sense to just ship a set of backdrops with all possible 
permutations and choose the right one to install or link to. The nice 
thing about creating a backdrop on the fly though, is that the DE logo 
could be included somewhere as well. For example the centre could have the 
Studio logo merged with the Kubuntu, Xubuntu, Ubuntu, Lubuntu or whatever
