if you modify the code - yes, and that means you lose:
1. root menus
2. ibar, ibox, engage, pager, clock, battery meter, start module, cpufreq and
temperature moudles - weatehr module etc. ie everything that creates a gadget
on your desktop.
basically there is no ORGANISED way to draw to the root window - it's a free
for all. if a screensaver draws to it - then it will draw OVEr anytgin e draw -
bg, gagdtes etc. e has no idea when it draws and what it draws and how much.
this is why e overlays the root window another window it uses for the desktop
to end the whole "who draws on root" war.
