there is no standard. the thing is a wm or de may even have different wallpapers
for different parts of the screen (eg xinerama with 2 or 3 heads or more
viewing 1 root), different wallpapers per virtual desktop (and per screen) or
per root (in multihead where you have multiple root windows) etc. etc.
