I've seen a couple of folks make a similar request. The only way I
could see you could do this would be to start an *term that is the size
of your desktop, turn on transparency or set a background image for the
*term and set the stacking for below.
Now I use enlightenment for my wm and it has this stacking option, I
don't know if all wm support this. When you set it to below, that
window will always stay under all other windows.

I didn't have to buy my radio from a specific company to listen
to FM, why doesn't that apply to the Internet (anymore...)?
