1. Get aterm.
2. Modify your database config to remove the titlebar and handles from 
   the "root" aterms:

Style "roottail" NoTitle, NoHandles, NoFocus, Sticky, WindowListSkip, StaysOnBack

3. Run any apps you want on the desktop in an aterm with title "roottail" 
   (to match the style in step 2), like so:

aterm -tr -T "roottail" +sb -g+0+0 -bg blue4 -cr black -e tail -f /var/log/messages &
