Not a good idea, since their themes (which can be shared among the
different window managers) all call 'bsetroot'.  We'd have to patch the
provided themes and warn the user that all additional themes they might
install would also need this change.  Cumbersome.

Yes, that would be good.  I'm currently creating a package for bsetroot,
using the blackbox tarball.  The problem is that the bsetroot tool
links with several of blackboxes object files, so I end up almost
building blackbox.
