Backtestground 0.4: Context Extraction Automated

Thanks to a contribution by Sergey Davidoff, there’s now an automated version of extract-background-context with the very inspired and not at all longish name extract-background-context-gnome.🙂

Provided it’s run from within a GNOME session, it takes care of changing and restoring the desktop background and taking the required screenshots.

If you know how to do the same in other environments, I’m all ears.

Though, even better than all of this would be a low level approach that gets the code responsible to draw all the stuff seen on top of the background to do so for various resolutions and to save that in image files right away.
