Interesting. Maybe the next version of ASetRoot can do that too.

It'll prolly be even a little faster if you don't even use an external
image loader and just have ASetRoot display the background pixmap, that way
it won't have to fork() an external process. Besides, I personally know
that ASetRoot is very fast at loading images.
