Those would be a bare minimum.  To make use of those one would also need 
access to the background image's data and some script to glue all the 
bits together (read the background image's metadata from somewhere, hunt 
down the things with the background, add a background rotation to all of 
them, update if/when the background image changes).

Much better ergonomics would be if one could just say "use the 
image-provided orientation" directly when specifying the 
background-image.  ;)
