Scale&Crop should work but if we want this theme then it has to be background 
for KDM and KSplash and there's no scaling/cropping support.

We should decide very soon which theme become default one. Current Leonidas 
landscape still needs a lot of work - it looks very nice on small screens 
(EEE) but on my workstation it lacks details and looks blurry. This Lion one 
is maybe too complicated but with some tweaking it could be really wonderful
