I think we should  use the same background as Ubuntu. This would certainly
be more unified, and I don't think  confusion will be a problem as you do
thoughtfully "pick" Xubuntu, so you know it's Xfce and what you can expect,
not that some one will feel like "where has the menu's gone?". I think the
more unified the better, personally.
