"X Set Root Image"

This is a simple app that does nothing much -- and uses a bazillion gtk2 
libraries to do it.  However, that means it can do nothing much, but 
with STYLE.

Setting the root image isn't very effective when using cygwin-X's 
multiwindow mode, UNLESS you're using an application that implements 
pseudo-transparency, like some terminal emulators.  The cygwin rxvt 
program does so, if invoked in "X mode" using the "-ip" option.

However, xsri is still useful with other window managers, if you don't 
want to use kcontrol or gnomecontrol or whatever -- because it uses the 
(semi-)standard xatom "ESETROOT_PMAP_ID" and "_XROOTPMAP_ID" mechanisms.

EXAMPLE: within startwin.bat or
xsri --center-x --center-y --scale-height=100 --scale-width=100 
--keep-aspect --emblem=<full cygwin path to image>
