Playing around with this variable in wxPython, it doesn't seem to do much of
anything--probably because we need to set the background color of the
composited map (i.e., all layers) with g.pnmcomp. I *can* change *that*
color and it does give a new background. But I was getting odd results from
the maps when I changed transparancy. I wonder if it's possible for
g.pnmcomp to have a transparent background?
