I don't think that is good enough; an end user should not have to think about setting the Background (granted, the drag-n-drop is easy, but obtaining the knowledge to do that was not).

 On my WindowMaker window manager, its Right click for a menu->appearance->Background->Images->an image.

With Wessell's Background Loader, its a very similar use case.

I am sure Windows and Mac have similar ease-of-use paradigms.

There is nothing intuitive about the World menu for setting the background image and there is nothing within the World that links to the http://wiki.squeak.org/squeak/1796
