the idea was to see if the background is really as 'insignificant' as for it to need enhancing. :) if it truly is, then it really should not matter if we switch it around or change it.
to use the applet, click on clear if you see no images, then click on 'center'
and then drag the mouse over the section you want to be the foreground,
then click on 'tile' and drag the mouse over the section you
want to tile with. and then of course, press go. the bar
at the bottom will select how thick or sparse you
want to tile the images.
