Same behavior with the added images to preview the background
different application.

We could also just ship our default background to reduce space on the HD
if the end user wants another background he would be previewing online
images instead of images stored on the file system.

If it's to difficult to add this with all the ui friendly manner then just
add a url ( in Gnome ) on the "backgrounds" in gnome-appearance-properties
to the gallery, End user double clicks the link, the gallery page open 
in his default browers
he previews the gallery right clicks a background he likes and chooses 
to set it as his default

It still would be needed to make adjustments so that each user account 
can have his own separated background.

I think starting packaging background-extras-*( animals etc )  would 
just be waste of resource.
