no there isnt. you have the other group of peolpe who also have to combing all
their images into 1 to spread across multiple screens if they want different
backgrounds. splitting is less work as there is only 1 split as opposed to N
permutations of 2 backgrounds you have. the code also deals with the bg of
each screen separately as it macthes a zone and a set of desktops.
