that's better. :-)
but not good enough. :-P
i don't think it makes too much sense to specify specific screens (the
meaning of the number is pretty opaque to the theme, which should be
designed generically). i guess the attribute should accept "greeter",
"other" and "all" instead. "greeter" would correspond to the screen
the greeter is painted on (which happens to be the primary screen
configured in xorg.conf as of now - but it should respect the
GreeterScreen setting instead), "other" would be all other screens.
i *think* the default should automatically change from "greeter" to
"all" for nodes marked as "background", but i'm not sure.
