Why not creating an empty folder in the finder, customize the background color and stretch it up until it fills the whole screen? You can even overstrecth it and hide the folder's title, icon, and buttons. Keep it on the dock and click on it when you need it. Not a fancy solution but it works.
Hmmm... that's not a perfect solution -- even if you hide all the buttons, etc., you still get a window border -- but for some people it might be adequate.
On the other hand, Backdrop gives you more options, is easier to use, and is free! I could understand trying to figure out a "kludge" if Backdrop was expensive, or if it didn't work well, but free and better is a tough combination to beat /forums/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif
