It looks to me like I'd be trivial to have a setting to enable/disable it.
I guess I won't worry too much about that for now.  And right, the idea is
that the image never be covered up.

Ah, so the general consensus is that users would want this?  From the code
I've been browsing through thus far, it seems like that'd be easy to do.
But of course, I'm no KPA expert... but I'll give this a shot.

I have the functionality I originally described practically finished.  I
think I'll play around with it a bit and post a patch in a day or so.
