Thanks but I already know the basics of getting the current term object, I
do that now to get the meta for some action hooks. Maybe I'm not explaining
the feature it's implementation well enough; would thinking about the
background picker in 2010 for each term be better? Each site owner has
different locations that they create and has their own preference for colors
and background.
