Whiteboard

Work items:
* Write scraping of background image path and settings like background color and image placement in the external script at least for GNOME and KDE (gconftool-2 in GNOME, ??? in KDE)
* Write interaction of the script and theme via "plymouth update" call
* Add image placement modes counterparts (zoom/stretch/scale/center) to the code of the theme
* Add counterparts for background color preferences to the code of the theme where possible
* [Wishlist] Add emulation of background color settings not supported by plymouth to the external script (use some CLI image editor?)
