I've just uploaded an easy to install tardist to /incoming, you can get it from
http://www.canavan.de/neko/neko_addtobg-1.0.tardist until it is moved to /beta. Is there any way to specify filenames with spaces in ~/.backgrounds? I had hoped that just changine $@ to "$@" might fix any problems, but it's the syntax of ~/.backgrounds that finally prevents filenames with spaces to work. I've tried various mixes of single and double quotes, as well as backslashes so far, without any usable results.

Yes, that is sort of a mystery, I seem to remember that some of the original background images in the .backgrounds file have spaces in their file names but if I manually add a file of my own it doesn't accept spaces in the file names.
